Job-Hungry College Grad Proves Picky Eater : NPR

Have a feeling older folks will commit suicide rather than face the future with these spoilted brats in any positions of power.

Really? What if I put up a story about a bunch of baby boomers in the sixties sitting around a circle & dropping acid? Would you say that's representative of an entire generation?

He's an entitled jerk. I am a Gen Y-er & would literally move across the nation for a 40,000 a year job during a time when some people have nothing.

But he's a special little snowflake!

My first job out of college from a top 25 school paid me $8.40 an hour. I had jobs in college that paid more..

After teaching Y'ers for a couple of years and eventually see them filter into my industry, I saw first hand how many think it's a chore just to wipe their own asses, let alone go on to do it for our elder population.

Blame the parents.

Seriously?

I'm 24 myself and have a college degree. I've worked in places where I was way overqualified and for half the salary, just to be getting a paycheck. Even a place right down the street from Hanover.

What. a. MORON.

Some of the hardest working people I know are in their 20s. Some of the laziest people I know are in their 20s. People are different, you can't paint an entire generation with such a broad brush.

First of all it's "Spoiled" not "Spoilted". Second I know plenty of young people who are hard workers and have already bought homes in their early 20's.
