With Millennials such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., now stomping their feet and demanding government-subsidized freebies in Congress and conversations of burnout in the workplace a common thing following the COVID-19 pandemic, new polls indicate that those born between 1981 and 1996 are having a hard time “adulting.”
According to a new Fortune poll, 35% of Millennials are still relying on their parents to pay their bills.

“Mooching Millennials” was a topic of discussion for the co-hosts of Fox News’s “The Big Sunday Show,” and, according to Lisa Boothe, the generation — of which, she is a part — is “disrespectful.”
“Here’s the thing, it actually bothers me because it’s so disrespectful to the parents,” she said. “If you’re a Millennial, your parents are trying to retire, and you’re taking their money like, go out and get a job. It’s really just so disrespectful.”
“Is this what happens when the ‘everyone gets a trophy’ generation has to grow up into adulthood and actually, I don’t know, be an adult?” asked host Todd Piro.
Co-host David Webb blamed the parents who gave them the trophies and didn’t “raise their children correctly.”
“This is a growing group of people from universities, a lot of them with higher education who spend a lot of money, get into debt, and don’t move on with their lives,” he explained. “So, I blame both the parents and the children.”
“And look,” he continued, “it’s time to get out of the house. The best antipoverty program is a job. Your parents won’t be around forever, and the majority of parents in this country are not leaving their kids millions of dollars to go out and live on their own.”
Another poll of more than 1,000 Gen Z and Millennial adults commissioned by Insuranks.com found that “both generations don’t know how to complete common ‘adulting’ tasks on their own. On top of that, Gen Zers can’t even turn to Millennials for help… since our report found half of Millennials don’t feel like they have a handle on growing up yet.”
“Broken down by generation, 42% of Gen Zers admitted to not knowing how to change a diaper compared to 29% of Millennials,” Insuranks reports. “Another task Gen Z struggles with more than Millennials is writing a check! Nearly 1 in 5 (17%) Gen Zers admitted they don’t know how to write one.”
No one, it seems, prepared them for being a grown-up.
“Nearly 2 in 3 (63%) Gen Zers and Millennials do not feel like they were prepared for the responsibility of being an adult, and 63% admit they feel burned out by adulthood,” according to the study.
Piro and co-host Tammy Bruce noted that Millennials tend to get easily stressed.
“When it comes right down to it,” Bruce said, “when people really have to deliver, they clearly won’t be able to.”
Boothe said she plans to make her children “tough” because “everybody else is so weak.”
“That is an important point,” agreed Webb. “For the people that showed up, even say, during COVID and went to work when others sat at home and got a check, they’re now the bosses.”
“So guess what, kids? While you sit at home in Mommy and Daddy’s basement, playing whatever game and pretending you’re the victim, your friend who graduated with you is going to be your boss,” he stated. “How does that feel?”
