They're saving more than the nation overall.

Despite Generation Y's apparent spending priorities and debt issues, this group is tucking away more money than the nation overall. According to a recent survey from Money Management International, a credit and debt counseling nonprofit, 44 percent of Gen Ys say they're funneling more money into savings (Americans as a whole say they're saving 36 percent more.)

Maybe we shouldn't beat up on Gen Y so much. Case in point: "Characterized by their sense of entitlement, casual clothes, Blackberries and high expectations, Gen Y has presented Generation X and Baby Boomer employers with the problem of managing and retaining them as employees," writes MMI.
