The Sandwich Generation
We are back with Riley Campbell, a local Raleigh high school student, to talk more about financial literacy and educate the next generation. Riley is questioned on who she thinks the sandwich generation is. Riley correlates the word sandwich with bread and meat, like most high school students would!
Founder, Jason Steele, explains that the sandwich generation is the group of middle-aged people who have to take care of their elder parents as well as their own children. The sandwich generation got it’s name because they are essentially “sandwiched” between the obligation to take care of their elderly parents, who may be incapable of doing so due to an illness or financial reasons, and children that need financial, physical, and emotional support. Especially during these unprecedented times with Covid-19, elderly parents may have to rely heavily on their middle-aged children.
