Generation Y in  the Middle East

First came the baby boomers then Generation X. And now a new generation born between 1982 and 2002 is entering the workforce in increasing numbers. Referred to as Generation Y this cohort has some specific values and attitudes which sets it apart from previous generations. Values are largely influenced by history and society. In China for example the one-child policy was introduced in 1979 so that a Generation Y member has two parents and four grandparents watching over them in the same period that China moved to a market-oriented economy.
