Millennials Killing Doorbell Industry By Texting 'I'm Here.'

We cannot afford to lose another industry at the hands of millennials, says economist Adam Smith.

Millennials Killing Doorbell Industry By Texting 'I'm Here.'

They've done it again, folks. Millennials are crushing yet another industry. The doorbell industry has been taking massive hits in the past decade. Professionals in the doorbell industry attribute the declining sales to millennials.

If you haven't noticed, millennials have the power of the world at their fingertips nowadays. By texting "I'm here" as opposed to ringing doorbells, they've cause a tremendous decrease in the need for doorbells ultimately causing the industry to take a massive hit.

Here are some quick facts:

1. In the past 10 years, doorbell sales have decreased by over 50%.

2. In the past year alone, that number has increased by 10%.

3. The unemployment rate amongst doorbell technicians has fallen by 20%, doorbell installation specialists have taken an even harder hit with the unemployment rate landing at 80%.

4. Only 2 in 10 Americans ring doorbells anymore, according to a recent study I just made up for this article

5. Only 4 out of every 10 doorbells in America actually ring.

If that's not bad enough, with newer doorbells such as "Ring" and "Nest," millennials have found a way to IMPROVE the doorbell industry by putting the power in the consumer's hand. Those who purchase these newer doorbells have no need for doorbell technicians or installations.

If you know a millennial, reach out to them. Discuss the horrible negatives they are having on our economy by creating newer, faster, and better technology. If one more industry crashes at the hands of the millennials, we are facing an economic downturn.

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
