The baby boomers, generally, are the generation of people who were born in the years following WWII, approximately 1946-1964. They were teens and young adults in the 1970s and 1980s, and now they're all solidly in their 50s and up. The generations that followed them - Generation X, the Millennials, and now the post-Millennials (who are currently being called Generation Z until someone settles on a name for them) aren't too happy with the way the boomers think life is - after all, when they were young, college was cheap and jobs were plentiful.
