    I work with a bunch of foreigners in IT and these dudes are lazy as fukk. We constantly have to go behind them and make sure they do their jobs.

    Boomers had a work ethic that the preceding generations haven't been able to really match. Think it was a visceral response to the Great Depression.

    That's a crock of shyt actually.

    Boomers had access to wealth from the shyt like their parents GI Bill and the expansion of Credit. This is all pre-1970s inflation. Which meant that credit or house that your family owned was worth significantly more. Every study on work habits shows that people work WAY more nowadays because of the technology. When Boomers entered the workforce, you went to the plant or office, punched in and when you punched out that was that.

    For most Gen X and Millennials work bleeds over into evenings and nights via email, Slack, Messenger and the sort.

    The economic boom of 90's had nothing to do with work ethic and everything to do with the rules being changed so certain people could keep blowing money.

    Each generation in the west is going to suffer more then there parents finically. They will work harder for less. Especially as 3rd world nations modernize. The height of American society will probably be the 1980s.

    What work ethic? You motherfukkers have staff begging for tips.

    The US will collapse under the weight of injustice this cabal of corporate snakes inflicts on its people.
