Generation Y: Spoiled And Oozing Attitude?

David Schepp

If you're a worker in your 20s, chances are you've heard the criticism before. It goes something like this: "Your generation is spoiled and doesn't have the discipline required to work hard."

And if you're older, you've perhaps expressed that precise sentiment about younger co-workers.

A recent survey by workplace-programs provider Workplace Options showed that 68 percent of workers across all age groups say Gen Y -- those 18 to 34 -- are less motivated to take on responsibility or to produce quality work, while 46 percent said this generation is less engaged, compared to their older counterparts.
