Millennial Monday: First Generation Millennials and the American Dream

COM16MM_AmericanDream_1200X900Express Employment Professionals recently teamed up with the School of Media and Strategic Communications at Oklahoma State University (OSU) in Stillwater, OK, to conduct research about Millennials and their attitudes toward the American Dream.
