Jared Rogalia, 25, a Hertz rental car manager-trainee in Alexandria, is as cranky as someone twice his age when he complains about his generation’s work ethic. Here’s how Rogalia characterizes his age group: “The first is: really spoiled and lazy. The second is: We’re free-spirited. And the third is: They’d rather be poorer and have free time than have a lot of money.”

You also have to realize these are indoctrinated young people through textbooks teaching them America is racist horrible etc. Obama was positioned as a uniter /centrist (morons believed this?) and voting for him would rid our nation of its collective guilt.

Young people are ignorant through lack of life experience. They are easy targets for Democrats and Dems go after them. Young white people are taught to be ashamed of their race and history. Voting for Obama was sold as the cool thing to do.

Now... hopefully they are waking up. Universities though are where the young are radicalized. Listen to the interview with Obama’s communist college buddy. Becoming a professor (though Obama was never more than an instructor) and ‘community activist’ were acceptable paths for socialists.

My sister is 24, she voted Republican. My Mama raised her right :-) she didn’t get sucked into the whole Obama mania crap. She said he was a phony from the moment she saw him.

Well, what did you expect? None of these kids ever lost or failed at anything in school. If they finished last, they still got an award. If they failed, they were labeled as “defered achievers,” or some such rot. Why would they have developed a “work ethic?”

If you are not a liberal at 20 you have no heart.

If you are still a liberal at 40 you have no brain.

“After a long, long seminar on dealing with these folks as employees, we decided that the class content could have been boiled down (generically) to “gimme! I’m entitled!””

From what I am seeing and being told from others who have to “suffer” through working with these people, this is absolutely correct.

They are arrogant and group thinkers. However, they aren’t motivated enough to rise to the level of being traitors. They simply don’t care enough to interfere with their personal, selfish narcissism.

There are exceptions to the rule. And when you talk to the rare few who don’t follow the herd, they will tell you to not trust or believe there are members of their ranks that will be capable of being leaders when they inherit this country. That is really alarming because they don’t see themselves in that role either.

They were not raised as individuals and they truly do not like the older generation and in a lot of cases they don’t like their parents. Many see their older counterparts as hinderances to their promotion at work. It rarely occurs to them that they might have to pay their dues to move up in the ranks.

Very alarming and very sad.

Spoiled, no work ethic and no understanding of American History. Useful idiots for the socialists. . . We have a lot of work to do to try and educate them. . They're a big voting block.

At that age I had a strong work ethic, but virtually no knowledge of US History or how the government is supposed to work. I’m 58 years old, but government education back then was pretty poor.

They will have a sobering moment when they learn that the Baby Boomers who raised them will have nothing to pass on to them because we had to pay for the ponzi scheme called Social Security and Medicare - instituted, managed, and consumed by “The Greatest Generation”.

I'm 45, and I have never understood this whole "paying your dues" business. Why should anyone have to "pay any dues" in order to achieve higher rank, status, or pay? Workers should be rewarded according to the quality of their work, not on the basis of how may years they've been punching a clock or how good they are at kissing ass.

I say if a person of 24 can do a better job than I can, they deserve to be my boss and make more money than I do.

What the author doesn’t account for is that the more spoiled and entitled the individual, the more enraged when they don’t get what they want.

When they can’t find work in this worsening economy they will hold Obama personally responsible for all their woes. And I don’t think all his various Obama Youth Corps programs will be able to employ a significant percentage of them.

The “young folks” polled don’t pay taxes, ie., they’re still leeches...
...making them, naturally, part of a core Democrat constituency.

It’s simple. They don’t understand the way the world works because all they’ve ever done is school, which is an unnatural situation led by liberals.

I remember when I was in high school. Weekly Reader published a quiz on “Are you a Republican or a Democrat” (This was when 18 year olds first got the vote). Almost every kid in the class, including me, was superliberal, according to the quiz.

So I took it home (I wasn’t supposed to) and gave it to my conservative mother. She answered the quiz opposite every answer I gave, and explained WHY. It was hard to understand her logic, but now I realize she was right in all her answers, simply because I’ve now been there.

I’m 26 and work until my supervisors practically shove me into the break room to rest for a bit.

I learned from the best. My dad. :)

I used to do that until I realised that none of the ‘work ethic’ generation work that way. Laziness isn’t the sole provenance of the young, regardless of what survey answers say. I personally think the younger generation is more honest about what they truly value.

Personally, I would rather spend more time with family and friends then I would at work. My family is the most important thing in my life after God.

For most of us, work really isn’t that important. It doesn’t define us, because ‘work’ is a nebulous concept. It comes and goes as it pleases.

I’m sure older generations made the connection with work because that’s what work was. You started at the bottom and worked your way up to the top. These days, it won’t work that way anymore. They will dump you when they don’t need you anymore and you have to find another job. This is why it’s unhealthy for us to define who we are by what we do.

Everyone under 40 should be sent to camps and force fed grits and Bob Wills music.
