Seattle Named #1 City to Work for Gen Y-ers! August 29, 2012

Payscale (the smart folks behind this finding) defines Gen Y workers as people with birth years 1982 – 1993. That makes me personally, a very clear Gen Y-er. Turns out it’s a good thing I live in Seattle!


This report finds that Seattle is the best place in the nation for workers ages 18 – 29.  It also found that Gen Y-ers prefer smaller firms with more flexibility and the opportunity to be entrepreneurial.  We also want to meet people our own age, max out our pay and avoid time-wasting commutes.

Do you agree?  Do you think Seattle is the best place to live?


Check out the article and infographic on Geekwire and the full report with tons of information about Gen Y at work:
