A little late to the game wondering why Gen X isn’t in many leadership positions. So what anyway? I'm always skeptical of people that look to 'lead' or even say the word "career" with a straight face.
Nearly 90 percent of the world's top 200 firms are currently led by boomers (born from 1946–1964) or an older generation. The few others are led by a Gen Xer (born from 1965–1979). As a Gen Xer, this makes me wonder why.

Fortunately, a boomer recently completed research to provide the answer. Gen Xers believe boomers will never retire — and if they do, they seek a Generation Y replacement (born from 1980–1995) at lower compensation to "mold" them into a similar way of thinking as the boomer (their words, not mine).
