Millennials are more likely to say they’ve seen discrimination at work. A new survey by Glassdoor and Harris Poll found 52% of 18-34-year-olds report witnessing or experiencing workplace discrimination, compared to 33% of workers over 55. Millennials are more likely than older generations to say they have seen or been victims of ageism, gender discrimination, racism, and LGBTQ discrimination. HR harassment complaints are also reportedly increasing, likely because of young workers’ increased awareness of inappropriate behavior. (WSJ)

Currently, odds of admission at “elite schools” are lower than they ever have been—helping to “[stoke] the environment of anxious families.” (WSJ)
