I have noticed recently, especially amongst the younger generation, mainly graduates that when an issue arises the first thing they do is find some one to blame. It seems easier for them to get the blame deflected from them rather than work on fixing what caused the issue in the first place.

Is this a new concept, are younger people wanting an easy life and not prepared to take a knock every now and again?

Growing influence of compensation culture. Accidents don't happen, everything is always someone else's fault. You don't learn from your mistakes; only other people make them and you just suffer the consequences. <_<

Fix the problem not the blame. However, it is important to know why something went wrong so whatever it was can be avoided in the future. What I would like to see is more people realising that sometimes, accidents just happen.

I blame the electorate for encouraging them.

It's not just the young, I work for a leading high street retailer and when the first hint of trouble arises the management can't pass the buck fast enough, it's almost commical to watch

New phenomenon? Good gracious no. Especially in politics. Military disasters were always good for a round of pin the blame on the donkey afterward; Gallipoli was the classic case: nobody wanted to know why things had gone wrong or how they might be prevented next time. A scapegoat was required, and when the music stopped, Churchill was left without a chair, which was more than a little unfair. Karma payback: when in 1940 the Norway campaign ended in ignominious retreat, the blame fell upon Chamberlain, decidedly unfairly, and not Churchill, who was more than a little bit responsible.

Why are the younger generation (especially graduates???) getting the blame?

What you are talking about is human nature so not applicable speficially to graduates.
After match interviews of most sports of members of the losing team more often than not display that characteristic.

Only recently on here the ref was blamed for England losing to Australia at Wenbley.

Which is simply a reflection of the electorate and society.
