I think many Boomers probably were raised into believing in "The Deal" -- work hard and you'll get a decent, secure job that keeps up with inflation, has secure benefits and will provide for a secure retirement at the end of the road. Many of them grew up seeing their parents get that deal.

I don't know about that. "The Deal" had already been broken by the time I graduated from engineering school in 1977.
