Is Generation Y the most worthless generation?
I'm sorry folks, I can't deal with these people anymore

I've never seen a more disgusting generation than the one emerging in the workplace...at first I thought I had a few bad apples, but even if you replace them, the apples behave the same fucking way

the laziest, most uncouth, unprofessional, if they could spell the word...im only 28, and astounded, jaw dropped and mystified by these people

swearing openly, did I mention extremely lazy? a very smug sense of being and I can't figure out why!!

I had to clean washrooms in offices at 16, these people never had to do any of that...man they will suffer come the economic collapse

Caught many talking to clients and pulling out personal blackberries...can you imagine that...sending text messages, checking emails when you're AT THE JOB THAT PAYS FOR YOUR TOYS, and really thinking nothing of it...

will do the bare minimum, and COMPLAIN the whole way doing it...it's amazing, really....i still have a hard time coming to terms with it

it's almost like they feel they're entitled to greatness...that they're just like a celebrity

they even talk like tv, they dress like tv, true lemmings, all equal opinions, all engaged in groupthink...it's almost like i'm the weird one for maintaining a work ethic in a depression economy....it's mind boggling

mass illusion at it's finest..these people just have absolutely NO concept of reality, even the basics...they don't even know where to find California on a map

yet they can regurgitate propaganda in school, or at least show up to class

and what the fuck does a 20 year old need a blackberry for??

these people will be digging for worms come the debt default

long rant, but im wondering if this is the case with any of you?

I'd hire a 70 year old man ANY DAY over any of these people

They are good at completing projects without being given a road map. Just tell them what you need as the end result, leave them alone, and it gets done.

No, that would be the baby boomers.... I do have to agree with you about the way 20somethings talk though. They sound like they are chronically stoned because they speak in monotone and slur all their words together. I guess they are just to lazy to annunciate each word separately. Im 31 by the way and I have nothing in common with 20something year olds.

But dont you get it ? This was the dream of those who started the "industrial revolution" ...to "make life easier for us" lol ..this was the idea of "progress" ...for man to become one with the machine. HOW THE HELL CAN YOU EXPECT A GOOD WORK ETHIC FROM THOSE WHO CHEERED THE MACHINE WORLD !!! FACE IT ...WE HAVE CREATED OUR OWN MONSTER. The more the machines do for us the lazier and lazier the human race will become. NO ONE wants to sweat anymore !!!!!! God forbid if someone should break a bead of sweat. LOL God forbid LOL ...that is why there are cars, trucks and suvs. So people dont have to sweat anymore. No one has to smell like horse shit and horses and sweat ....GODDDDD I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO LIVE IN THOSE DAYS !!!! That is when men were men and women were women. When people actually had to sweat not just to earn a living. But also to just live. It was sweat morning, noon and night. Now THAT is the correct way to live !!!!

the modern world is garbage.

The more "technologically advanced" we become the lazier we will get. I guarantee it. It is a no brainer really. LOL ...and those BEFORE the baby boomers. ...what did they do ? They fought and died for the machine world. They fought and died for that idea of "progress" ...can you say "industrial revolution". We created the matrix. We suffer with it. And we bare its burdens. Generation, X, Y, Z, O. IT doesnt matter ! Every human being that has ever lived is partly responsible for it. Love the machine ? Then you hate humanity.

Man's symbiotic connection with the cosmos will be known and there is nothing which can stop that knowing. Because everything we all do everyday helps confirm that truth. It is just that we haven't reached the pinnacle of where it leads. But we will soon enough. We will either live or die with that knowledge. Between Heaven and Earth is us.

Re: Is Generation Y the most worthless generation?
I think lumping a generation into one giant generalization is akin to saying that everyone who is 6 years old is a first grader and his/her piers are all those others who are 6 years old.

Take the baby-boom "generation". You have the early baby boomers who were old enough to be drafted for the Vietnam War; the middle baby boomers who saw their brothers go to war but did not have to face the draft; and finally the late baby boomers for whom the Vietnam war was already over by the time they became aware of the big wide world. Are you going to lump all those people into a one-size fits all generalization? How meaningful is that?

Perhaps a little compassion for this Generation Y that you speak of, as they just might be the most destroyed group of kids this country has yet produced?

Aren't these the kids of baby boomers who saw their parents stabbed in the back by big corporations who they thought would be loyal to them only to find that as they got older they were expendable. As a result they are not loyal to their employers.

Throw in the fact that they witnessed the birth or free agency in professional sports. Someone is always willing to pay more and sports figures quit spending careers with one team. Think about it. This resulted in looking for the next better offer and I can always go somewhere else mentality.

In addition the boomers as a whole spoiled their kids, largely in part due to the rise of merchandising and advertising.

There is a good book called Managing By Defining Moments by Geoffrey E. Meredith, Charles D. Schewe, PhD.

Goes into the whole thing and how the events experienced during adolescence/early adulthood form who they are as a generation.

If you know where they're coming from then you'll be able to better manage them.

I am 49 and have seen the best and worst of all three generations (X, Y and BB) so don't go generalizing or trying to place round individuals into square holes. Human beings are a little more complex than that thank God! And how can gen Y be anything more but a product of their environment - consumerist driven crapitalism that places individuation on a pedestal for the sake of the dollar.

Re: Is Generation Y the most worthless generation?
I am sorry, but I think the greatest generation probably were the biggest babies, sucked the Government teat the most. They are the only generation that worked at a job and got real retirement benefits from their employer, and collected many, many times the Social Security benefits than they paid in. Their wars were the big wars, and anything since is just a military action, even though many thousands of young people got killed in them. They always expect the Government to solve all their problems, especially when they became Senior Citizens. Ah yes the Senior Citizen discount when the people that can afford what they are buying get a discount besides. Then the young families have to pay full price (which includes the Seniors discount) with their limited beginning incomes. I am supposed to be a Boomer, but in my area, I have worked harder, and lived less generously than the greatest generation, and have less to show for it all. I believe it the younger generations. They have inherited this shithole of a mess to deal with, and they will never get the breaks of the greatest generation. Just my rant for today.
