I was talking to an old supervisor about a topic on a NPR radio show we both heard about Generation Y (lets say 18-30 yr) in the workforce and why there is a sort of clash b/w us and the Baby-boomer generation/management/ and for some of us in the future, managing/hiring partners at firms.
He basically thought too many of us felt entitled to immediate movement up the ladder and that we had grown up in priviledged lives where everyone was a winner. Thoughts? Are we just a bunch of spoiled brats that don't know how to put in a hard days work anymore?
Maybe that's less of a Gen Y/Boomer disparity, and one of a more simple generational gap.
i.e. Young people want to move up the ladder faster to prove themselves, gather more responsibility/power/money, etc. Old people are like, "Young whippersnappers, thinkin' they can just come on in here and instill their own social order. God damn kids."
