anyone have any good advice on dealing with this 19-24 year old generation?
It seems to be an epedimic!! the more people I talk too the more I hear the same thing over and over.... we have a generation who seem to think the world revolves around them!! lack of work ethics.... could it be that there really are so many jobs out there that they control the work place? would we 28+ year olds ever think of bringing your cell phone to work let alone text message all day long? it boggles my mind.
I have also seen a lack of the ability to follow thru with commitments... a mans word seems to have no impact these days. I am surprised at the amount of partying going on and young people wanting advances but don't want to work... and not beyond 5 hours/day. The amount of $$ that employers are putting in for job training is staggering.
I have also seen a lack of taking responsibility for one's actions... have we been letting kids get away with things too much? how as a society are we to blame for this seemingly immature generation?
I feel frustrated... what is the work place going to be when all the baby boomers retire?
please now I am generalizing, I know there are good high moral hard working young people out there...I just think they are becoming too far and few inbetween!!!
wrist still hurts, didn't get the time off work even though I cannot even hold a pen!!! when I showed my boss the DR note he laughed and made a bad joke, then when I told him I was leaving at noon he stared at me and said he is concerned about the owners $$....I tried to remind him that I am paid by the hour...to which he lectured me on honesty!!! um yah. whatever.... good thing I don't have a nanny anymore cuz that would have been just too helpful.... washing dishes with 1 hand proves to be fun!!! sorry ranting again....
