What was special about the young people who came of age in the 90s? The label Generation X, from the Douglas Coupland novel, has stuck to this group. They were called an unwelcome, unwanted generation, and pilloried by their elders. And there was always a subset of youngsters who got their own pejorative label: slackers. If Gen X doesn't get the respect it deserves, slackers are probably to blame. Produced by Curtis Fox.
