miss jinxed: Getting a kick out of the article since I'm the same age as most of the people in the article and I'm sitting at my current job playing Candy Crush and sending out resumes.
doubled99: No, every generation is not seen the same. As a Generation Xer, I can say we were not generally characterized as whiny and entitled, but instead lazy and apathetic. Still bad, but slightly less annoying.
Jedekai: thecpt: Galileo's Daughter: Lack of jobs in nursing? Are you kidding? Here in Georgia, hospitals are paying thousands of dollars in sign-on bonuses to nurses.A couple of young nurses I know are being furloughed. They also say thanks Obama which makes me laugh oddly./north eastHospitals like their bottom line. Obamacare cuts into that bottom line, and he refuses to consider an exemption for hospitals. End result: FAIL.Take it this way: Your a hospital's head of HR. You have a budget of five apples. The government takes an apple because your alive, they take an apple because your working, they take an apple because success is a Mortal Sin, and they need to feed someone who isn't successful or working... because you can't hire them. They just took that apple... and then they take another apple because you have people working for you in a hospital, "But it's a hospital... can't I just have the employee EAT THE DAMN APPLE YOU'RE GIVING THEM ANYWAY?!""No. That's our job. It goes to Sploofy, she's a 22-year-old mother of nine-by-six-different-fathers-and-farm-animals who's stuck outside of Memphis in a mobile home with a CNA.""...why can't I just hire her, put her on the hospital's insurance plan and then you don't have to pay for it?""Our plan is undeniably better because we say so, without any data relevant to the problem at hand."

pkellmey: Galileo's Daughter: Lack of jobs in nursing? Are you kidding? Here in Georgia, hospitals are paying thousands of dollars in sign-on bonuses to nurses.It is completely a regional thing. I live near a state border. We have no nursing jobs in our portion of the state, but move across the border about half an hour and they can't find enough nurses.
FatherChaos: [img.fark.net image 220x220]I'll take a job from her, if you know what I'm saying.
OldManDownDRoad: redmid17:I know kids from high school that have been making more per annum since 19 than most of my college graduate friends make now at 26/27. It might not be awesome or a name dropper, but you can make a shiat ton of money. I'd have to double check but IIRC the two "richest" friends of mine from growing up had a a dad who started out as an plumber turned GC and an electrician turned SW developer. Neither father went to college.My best friend from college became a GC and did very well - at one point he was running five crews and sitting in a very nice office, answering the phone while they raked in the bucks for him.The other side of that coin was the collapse of the housing industry starting in 2006. By 2009 he was back to swinging a hammer during the day and staying up all night taking care of the paperwork (contracts, take-offs, estimates, supplier bills, etc). He finally gave up and took a job teaching shop at the local high school. He still does remodels and repairs and keeps his license up-to-date, but he says he'll never build another house.Which is a shame, because he built solid houses and a lot of his business was return customers. But every industry has its weak points.And besides, you can't fart or tell dirty jokes in shop class.
