I’m certain (and the comments on this Youtube video confirm it) that there will be many who will take offence after watching this video. It does, however, represent a view of today’s young people by some that needs to be talked about….
There’s no doubt that there is a wide gulf, at times, between older and younger generations when it comes to their approach to work. While videos like this one (embedded below) view the issue through lenses of “right and wrong” (and in this case the younger generation is painted as wrong), I think it’s more helpful to view this as a ‘War between two Wisdoms”. Baby Boomer wisdom has gotten us to where we are, and Xer and Millennial wisdom will take us forward. Certainly there are lessons to be learned by both generations, but those learnings can only take place through meaningful dialogue.
