The 'Old Economy Steve' Meme Criticizes the Lifestyle of Pre-Millennials

The ‘Old Economy Steve’ memes are another demonstration of a young generation criticizing those that came before them. Pointing out how much easier it was to obtain jobs and maintain a career 20-30 years ago, ‘Old Economy Steve’ is a humorously bitter statement against pre-millenials.

The meme depicts an awkward school photo of a young man from the 1970s. He grins foolishly into the camera as text spreads across the photo, describing his carefree lifestyle. Some of the accusations imposed on ‘Old Economy Steve’ by the millenials are: “Types with one finger- makes six figures,” “Loses job- finds another one on his way home” and the simple and eloquent “Retires.”

It’s no secret that the job market is much tougher and more competitive than it was 20-30 years ago. ‘Old Economy Steve’ demonstrates the resentment by millenials towards their predecessors in a fittingly modern medium.
