Despite shouldering record amounts of student debt and being less likely to own a home as older people were at the same age, millennials and Generation Z workers report slightly more satisfaction with pay than their parents’ generation.

A survey of 2,000 employees by Conference Board, a business research group, finds that 46 percent of workers under 35 were happy with their compensation in 2018, up from 36 percent just a year earlier.
