Boomer Trends Millennials Think Needs To Disappear Forever

Chain Restaurants

While some millennials choose chain eateries for convenience and familiarity, many prefer small, independent enterprises.

Fax Machines

Fax machines seem outdated in the age of email and digital communication. Modern workers are conversant with digital technologies and see little reason to use this slow, wasteful way of communication.

Printed Phone Books

Smartphones and the internet have made physical phone books obsolete, therefore most younger people prefer to search up contact information online.

Cable Television

Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are replacing cable TV for younger generations. By letting viewers watch when they choose, these platforms offer more flexibility.

Traditional 9-5 Jobs

Millennials are less interested in 9-to-5 Monday-Friday job than prior generations. Millennials prefer flexible work schedules for work-life balance.


Online shopping has made malls less appealing. Modern buyers choose online purchasing for its convenience and variety.
