Actually none of my fellow millenials feel any of this stuff… it’s more so we’re disappointed that we pay thousands and thousands of dollars on education (that we were told would get us a job at the end) then we’re told we can’t actually get hired in the fields we studied for because we magically don’t have 5 years experience. We can’t do internships because they don’t pay anymore and they only want students (so they don’t have to pay them). So we have to work minimum wage jobs to lay off mountains of student debt. We’re not entitled (thanks), just frustrated because we were told as children that if we got a good education, we’d get a good job then could participate in all the “adult” things. Then they changed the game on us, we can get jobs, we can’t afford housing, we are constantly told that we’re entitled and lazy even though millenials are the hardest working generation. We’re the first generation that is worse off than our parents since the turn of the 20th century.

I’m not turning this into a pity party. But it’s not fair to say millenials are entitled.
