Overqualified millennials unhappy in the real world

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Are they distracted? Is it the money? Are they overqualified?

An article from the Huffington Post titled, "Why Generation Y Yuppies are Unhappy," is making the rounds on social media this month.

It discusses why millennials are unhappy with their jobs. Millenials are people between ages 18 and 29 years old.

She advises millennials to not give up, and to get any real world experience they can, including internships.
