The work ethic is not on the employers side of the fence either. You have employers that would rather hire someone that is devoted to their political and religious zeal over quality workers and competent management. There are alot of employers with high turnover rates because they do not want long term employees. Its not cost effective in terms of the labor cost with raises or promotions, benefits or tenures. Employers would rather hire and fire as many workers in order to fuel the job market, but workers today are not experienced to skilled. Young people today are from the technological era. They have no knowledge of self reliance or independence because parents or grandparents made it easy for them. There is no more bootstrap philosophy. I started working at 12 for two dollars and hour in 1975. I was forced and eventually cared about sharing the bills and money in our household before graduating from high school. I even walked to the laundry mat to wash my own clothes with the money I earned. I am glad my mother forced me to be that way now because I see young people lazy and bossing their parents around calling them names and demanding money for clothes or electronics, what happened?
