Texting and Changing Demographics
According to Pew Research, millennials (ages 22 to 37 in 2018) are now the largest component of the U.S. labor force, totaling 56 million. Gen Z (born after 1996), the generation following them, is starting to enter the workforce in mass. They don’t use email nearly as often as previous generations. So, email will become an even less effective tool than it already is as demographics continue to shift.
