Generation Y not saving for retirement

Businessweek writes about efforts to get employees of Generation Y to contribute to 401(k) and other retirement programs. Apparently, this is difficult as student loans average around $20,000 and average salaries for this age group have dropped 19 percent over the last three decades after adjusting for inflation.

If you are in Generation Y, be prepared to see more efforts (through social media, for example) to get you to contribute to retirement savings.
