How will millennials impact the future of Butte and beyond?

January 21, 2018View for printing

As a generation, millennials sometimes get a bad rap.

Some have called them the generation lazy, while others have accused the group of being responsible for the demise of the retail industry. Just ask Business Insider, which recently came out with a list of everything millennials are "killing," including starter homes, macro beers, golf and even napkins.

But no matter how you dice it, one thing's for certain: young people have been leaving rural communities by the droves.

Soon the three economic-development advocates will get a chance to showcase Butte during the annual Montana Young Professional Summit, June 21-23, during which more than 150 young professionals will descend upon the Mining City.
