some good and some bad...
from what i see i would say poor, very poor.
it depends on the kids but with this new age of cell phone twitter, facebook ect. they spend a lot of time on their phone while at work. Not cool. I asked my 20 year old if he was on his phone at work he said no i dont even take in into the building he said i go to my car for my dinner and check it.
Work ethic exists just as much today as it did at any point in history. That is, it doesn't exist. Everyone seems to talk about work ethic as if its a physical characteristic instead of a state of mind/opinion. "You either have it or you don't" ridiculous, self-indulgent tripe. Just another "I was born better" mindset. The reality is everyone has work ethic for some things, and no work ethic for others. A lot of people are going to say "what about kids who just stay at home and play video games and do nothing with their life?" Well actually they don't exist either. You're creating them in your mind. You need someone to judge, someone whos an easy target. So you choose someone who isnt as active in their life. This isn't a "socially adaptive tool" like so many people think it is, it's a strategic decision to pick on someone who, to your way of seeing, has no network of friends who could defend him. In other words, it's a cowards way out. You complain all the time about how they "don't do anything and you end up supporting them", which is untrue, and then later talk big about how "I won't be doing anything to help him, hes not staying here", and then later talk about how "he'll never make it". So which is it? Do you or don't you support him? If you don't, your part in his life is over so shut your mouth. NEWSFLASH: all the money you're losing for taxes, would be claimed to be spent on something different if the welfare system did go belly up. You're slaves, bottom line. As a young person who sees literally no opportunity in this life anymore, I have to tell you a little secret. We know you don't do the things you do because of a work ethic. We know you do them because of you're inherently greedy nature. It used to be that people were so gullible, they would chase after anything the media presented to them. People tend to forget this was a very serious way of life in the 50s and 60s, and a lot of people still live to those effects today. Now the big thing isnt proving you're 'part of the gang'. it's proving your capable. Except people didn't bother becoming independent first, so instead of proving their capable by questioning the false authorities of the world and fighting for the right thing in the face of adversity, they 'prove their capable' by chasing after the things the media tells them to chase after, just to prove that even though they dont need them, they could acquire them. You're kids are 'lazy' 'expecting' and 'selfish' because so were (and are) you. The main difference is you knew it was a crock and faked it, and taught your kids it was real. Which is exactly what our 'owners' wanted, and got. Talk all you want about how you're doing the right thing, and one day your grandkids will be gunned down by the army you're boss' boss' grandson was able to afford with the money earned from you 'doing the right thing'. It's unbelievable with all this information that you people are still ignora
Some have a good work ethic but way too many are lazy and think the world owes them a living for doing nothing.
Some are lazy, some not so much. A few (mostly females) are far too attached to their cellphones to do any work, and finding someone who takes initiative and does tasks without being told is rare. Generally though, once it's made clear that something is expected of them, they'll get it done.
Unfortunately yes quite a few young adults have poor work ethics these days in the work world.
First off, I read all the post before replying. Screwedbyyou needs to get a clue! most young adults today are lazy, disrespectful, inconsiderate, and have no sense of ownership. They don't listen to authority and think they are entitled to pay without work. And who has to pick up the slack? Of course the adults who have good work ethics. I believe that every young adult should serve at least two years in the military...mandatory! And every young adult should also be susceptible to a good old fashioned ***-whooping!
