Boomers' Kids Are Not Worker Bees

They can knock us all they want, but at least we know a little something about earning a living. According to this article, employers are frustrated with the young 20's, who expect the perks and salaries of those who have already put in their time.

Dr. Mel Levine, a pediatrics professor at the University of North Carolina Medical School and author of a book on the topic called "Ready or Not, Here Life Comes." notes that "many of the individuals we see are heavily committed to something we call 'fun.' " First came the hippies, then the slackers, and now our kids--the "Entitlement" generation, not looking forward to work being a lot like...work. Of course we boomers can still take the blame, since we're the parents of some these post-college kids. But at some point, isn't it time to stop blaming your parents?
