I was watching a recent episode of Survivor and the players distinguished themselves between old school strategist and the new strategist. It is a struggle between the old way and the new way of doing things. Are the younger generations lazier, entitled, or is technology showing them they can work smarter not harder ?
As the world evolves, so does the human race. I do not think that Americans, the younger generations, are opposed to, or gave up on manual labour ,they are seeing new ways to work, and that the older ways were not very beneficial or fair to dedicated loyal employees. Many Corporations have not been good to their employees for decades. Women are still fighting for equal pay, minimum wage is not at a practical hourly rate for the cost of living. The youth are growing up in a time of transparency at their fingertips and they want a better way, or they will find one. I feel they want better for themselves and the world they live in. Corporations destroy the ecology for their gain, its a destroying cycle that the younger generations want to change.
A lot of company’s moved their business out of the U.S., or they do not want to pay decent wages. The math does not add up when companies make huge profits and employees barely make enough to make ends meet. Corporations that get away without paying taxes, if they can do it, then so should citizens. They have to many loop holes, umbrellas of protection, a lot of power and money compared to the hard working individuals that contribute, make profits for these greedy company s. Do not get me started on the IRS either ! I would love to hear the assesments that the youth have about the world they are living in and how it affects their views on work, privacy, corporations, technology, race, sexuality.
