WE WORK TOGETHER;
BUT DON’T ALWAYS UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER

NOW THERE’S HELP—Have you ever said something to a group of co-workers or neighbors and suddenly had the sinking feeling that they didn’t understand a word you just said to them? Why can’t those “young people”—or those “older people”—understand us?

Right now, Americans have four huge generations in the workforce and lots of time and energy is wasted because we simply miss cultural cues from each other. That’s why the Michigan State University School of Journalism Bias Busters team has just published its first double-sized guidebook: 100 Questions and Answers about Gen Xers—and on the flip side of the book, an entire second book begins: 100 Questions and Answers about Millennials.

In our Cover Story this week, we preview some of the key questions. There’s even a two-question Pop Quiz. It’s super simple. (Or so we thought!)

Please, read this Cover Story, get the guidebook—it’ll make life so much easier for you in the future—and tell friends about this news.
