Feed the Pig Survey Highlighted by Time Magazine Website
Published November 06, 2013
Time Magazine's website reports that millennials are maturing in some surprising ways. Their work ethic is stronger than most believe. They are more aware of what it takes to build a nest egg than other generations, and they’ve done a decent job getting diversified.
But the Facebook generation is taking too many wrong financial cues from one another, a new survey shows. Three in four 25-to-34 year olds (a group that includes older Millennials and younger Gen X members) look first to their peers for money guidance, according to the survey from the American Institute of CPAs and the Ad Council. To get young people’s attention, the Ad Council and financial website Feed the Pig just released a series of humorous public service advertisements about saving.
