Somewhat unrelated. Mods, feel free to delete if it derails the thread. But when did this become a generational issue? Frankly, I’m tired of the “millenials are entitled and lazy” storyline. You added that “there’s plenty” who want something and are willing to work for it, but imply that for the most part, this group is lazy and entitled. Perhaps you were bringing this in because most of the players are millenials, I’m not sure.
You say you’re a history guy. What did parents say about their kids in the 80’s? In the 60’s? That they “didn’t know how good they had it” and were lazy? Read articles from the era, or watch movies. Frankly, this generation is very similar to any other. Some hard workers, some truly lazy people, and plenty just willing to do the minimum to get by.
I, and several friends of similar age, have started multiple businesses, worked multiple jobs simultaneously, and busted tail to earn things. Please don’t lump together 15 years of Americans based on their age, and imply that most of them aren’t hard working.
