Summary/Abstract: Generations share common experiences. According to the literature of the subject, ‘Generation Y’ includes people born between the mid-1980s and the 1990s. The author proposes her own typology of generations in Polish society. She proposed to define ‘The Millennials’ as: ‘Generation of the EU’, ‘Generation of reform’ and ‘Generation Erasmus’. The article points to the conditions of the ‘Generation Y’ on the Polish labour market. The main aim of the present work is to confrontate attitudes of young people with the phenomenon of precariat. ‘The Millennials’ are suffering the precariousness. The author, based on empirical research, attempts to extract strategies for coping with the precarious situation among young people as: vacuum, motionless and waiting room.
