I should clarify - I was not talking about fast food workers. I'm talking engineers, programmers, software dev, sales, project managers, small
business owners, actuaries, etc.
Well, of course those people will stay... they have already invested in improving themselves. That's not the general rule, though, from what I have
seen. The kids that work in fast food vastly outnumber those in professional positions.
Have you ever seen a google office, or any tech company office?
Not directly, but I have heard of them. And that kinda proves my point: why would any company deliver such perks if they didn't have to in order to
You do realize all those luxuries cost money, right? That's money that could be in the kids' paychecks. But it says something when kids are choosing
such luxury comfort over cash, then complaining that they don't have enough cash.
Plus, again I was talking about the majority. Kids working in fast food do not get such treatment... if they did, people would be starving to death in
the waiting line!
I strongly disagree with you here. If the only millennial/zillennials you know work fast food, your sample size is insufficient. I was born in
the 80's and many of my peers are extremely hard working and successful.
I was talking about mainly kids up to their mid-20s. Born 1990s or later. Although I wasn't as impressed with your generation either, to be honest,
except in comparison with this new one. I guess if you use today as a yardstick, you guys weren't so bad.
I'm not sure what you did that you think younger generations could not do.
not do. And here
is an example already posted.
Show me someone in this generation who will go without food for a week... I have. Took that long to finish the contract and get paid. Show me someone
in this generation who will work two jobs and take a full load in college all simultaneously. I did. Show me someone in this generation who will ride
a bicycle across a medium-sized mountain before sunup, just so he can then haul hay all day for less than minimum wage, then ride back. I have. Heck,
show me someone in this generation who will work 7 12s for a couple months! I did that more than once. I know of two who might... my own kids, who I
raised the same way my Daddy raised me. Both of them will tell you the same thing about this generation, their generation, that I do.
