A generation of (typically) young people described as wanting everything to be given to them as quickly as possible in return for as little effort or sacrifice as possible. Kids in the now generation just don't know the value of an honest day's work. I've heard a lot of older people calling kids my age the "now generation," but weren't they called that or something equally condescending when they were our age?
