Stupid, lazy young folks

| 0 comments

Usually millennials get shit for being lazy and entitled. But now that the numbers show so many of us are working crap jobs, we’re getting called stupid, too. This WSJ article suggests that young people are shooting themselves in the foot by staying in their low wage jobs.

Changing jobs is one of the most important sources of wage growth, particularly for younger workers. With unemployment for those under age 25 still elevated at 15.6%, many of those lucky enough to have jobs are playing it safe by staying put—and as a result may put themselves at a permanent earnings disadvantage.

Those silly young folks. There are so many good jobs to be had if we’d just apply for them!
