    They said there was 3 generations today in todays work force, which, looking back, Id say there always has been. They was showing where kids thought they should be entitled to a vacation after a couple of months work, with or without pay. They were saying that todays kids, cause there so puter savy feel that work should be structured around them, along with where they actually work. They was saying in around a bout way, that theyre too smart to be working meniel manual labor jobs, and if they ever did stoop low enough to take one, it was cause they needed somthing to tide them over till their dream job come begging them to go to work. They were saying that the old timers, the baby boomers, tho alright at what they do, steady workers, take less time off, are more concenious about their jobs, more likly to stay with a job as long as possible, arent going to be here much longer, and companies have to begin to thing about restructuring their work so as to entice the kids in their 20s. I guess thats alright if they get it. I cant see that working 40/50 yrs ago, and I really dont see it working in the future, except for the high end jobs. Companys know people have bills , and have to work to pay them. Todays generation may counter some of the force that companys have always had with their employees by hopping from job to job, never really learning a skill or trade so that that becomes a detriment to the company, they not having the people in place day by day with the skills needed to do their part of the job. No cohiesiveness. If that happens, and It could, I dont know what companys would do to maintain their soverntry over their employees. Theyrl probably be some give and take with the companys, and the kids will try to find their dream job after much hopping and then stick with it. Have to wait and see.

    I think the few good workers (and immigrants raised to be good workers) will be in high demand and the rest will either be very poor or revolt and demand socialism like Europe has where all get plenty to live on without much differentiation between those working hard or not much at all.

    Sounds like the show was a spin on why we need illegal immigrant workers.
