I’m a couple months too old to be considered a millennial, but since everyone under 60 has been screwed by the Boomer generation, I can sympathize. No benefits, no pensions, and no hope of ever retiring is our fate, all so they could play make-believe with supply-side economics.

I was drawing this when Time’s trolling cover story about “selfish, lazy, millennials” came out, so this isn’t directly in response to that, just a happy accident. Leave it to a rich-as-fuck columnist to be willfully ignorant of wage stagnation in the face of sky-high worker productivity and corporate profits.

It’s not all bad news, my fellow middle-agers and youngs; eventually these greedy shitheels will all die off. And we’ll have a couple months to enjoy a world without them before climate change finishes the job they started.
