"Strawberry generation" generally means the post 80s like the strawberries--- who seem delicate and charming apparently while they are actually fragile, unable to bear any pressure or frustration. They are easily spoiled once touched.

Those youngsters who were born in 1980s are labeled sarcastically as "the Strawberry Generation".

Strawberries are delicate and great tasting fruit, but very fragile and perishable.

The Strawberry Generation is called thus because they also cannot bear the harsh realities of the real world and work very hard.

Many youngsters nowadays really are not adaptable to the rules and demands of the adult world. They are not only selfish, arrogant, but also sluggish in work.
