New research suggests that, contrary to popular portrayals as materialistic, young Australians do not prioritise income to the extent that older generations do. 

A survey of more than 1,000 Australian workers by human resources thinktank Reventure showed that less than half (48 per cent) of Millennials see financial security as important in ensuring high levels of personal wellbeing, compared to 60 per cent of Boomers and 54 per cent of Gen X.
