generation, right? wrong -- according to cnbc's latest all-america economic survey -- which finds millennials might not be so different than any other generation.... steve liesman has the results. conventional wisdom holds that the millennial generation, influenced by the world of high-speed mobile devices, is a unique group of young people. but a special cnbc all- america economic survey focusing on millennials --- a group aged 18-34 years old --- finds that while the generation has some unique characteristics, young people today in some critical areas are more similar to the rest of the population than they are different.
when it comes to investments, just a third thinks this is a good time to invest in stocks, about the and all adults saying it's a bad time to invest. fewer millennials, however, say it's a "very bad time" to invest. as a group, they are somewhat more risk- averse than the rest of the population. for example, 21 percent chose savings account and cash as their top investment choice, compared with 14 percent for all adults. that could be a the key instrument when you're financial crisis. but that's the thing that we should try to change for young people more than anything else. because they hahae this great opportunity. even if they're investing a small amount it should not be in cash." potential employer - like ethics, environmental practices, work-life balance and diversity, ,millennial preferences are just about the same as the broader population on all six. millennials are different in some key areas at work: they are more likely to be concerned about opportunities to advance in their careers and employer's retirement benefits... which you'd expect from young people. in the survey -- millennials
also asked what they're doing with extra money from lower gas prices -- 27 percent said they would try saving more... while another 20 percent said they would simply drive more. coming up.... a smart phone giant files a patent for a new protection app... and -- this holiday season expected to be busier than usual when it comes to shipping those gifts in the mail... this is kwwl-- we'll be right back.

today -- and its very encouraging... businesses added 271-thousand jobs across the country last month -- the most since last december.... it's good enough to lower the unemployment rate to five-percent --the lowest we've seen in seven years.... now we'll have to wait and see how the fed responds... if it raises interest rates. it's expected to be a busy holiday season for the u-s postal service... it expects to deliver some 15- point-5 billion pieces of holiday mail this year -- including 600- million packages between thanksgiving and new year's eve.... that's 10-percent more than last year.... december 21st is expected to be the busiest single delivery day...

affair with it, we want to pass along a cabbage fritter recipe that a viewer recently8shared with us. first thing we did was to shred a few cups of cabbage. to that we added some finely chopped onions, crumbled bacon, a little flour, a few seasonings and a couple of beaten eggs. we give that a good mix before dropping heaping tablespoons of the batter into some hot oil. once they begin to crisp up around the edges, we flip them and cook them until both sides are either way, when you serve these, maybe with a bit of
sour cream and sprinkled with a few chopped chives, get ready for lots of crunchy goodness. i know you're going to want the recipe for "aunt nellie's cabbage fritters," to keep on hand as an easy go along that goes with just about everything. i'm howard in the mr. food test kitchen, where today we're looking for a "new" way for you to say .

"just get something." is better than nothing, when it comes to protection. better to be safe --
