Young professional women may not relate to the financial struggles their Millennial peers are protesting against during the Occupy New York movement. After all, these ambitious go-getters are working as doctors, lawyers, engineers, and advertising executives, blessed with great salaries, health benefits, and paid vacation.
Millennials view traditional employment skeptically after the turmoil of the Great Recession, and many see the entrepreneurship of self-employment as the way to take control of their futures and achieve security as well as job satisfaction.
