 Study Finds Gen Y too Lazy, Unfocused for Jobs
New data indicates Australia's Generation Y will be having a tough time landing a job, as employers find them too lazy and unfocused to be hired.

According to the Courier Mail, bosses see Gen Y workers as people who lack work ethic and spend too much time talking to friends during work hours.

"Employers come to us about Gen Y, saying they're looking for a staff member but they don't want anyone in that 20s age bracket because they find they don't understand common courtesy in the workplace," quoted Kristy-Lee Johnston, director of Footprint Recruitment, as saying.

But the complaints do not come only from managers and bosses.

"They also come from other people in the team who are of another generation," social researcher Mark McCrindle said.

Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland policy general manager Nick Behrens said the global financial crisis should act as a wake-up call.

"The chamber is hoping Gen Y will learn from this, that they can no longer take for granted the good times and will no longer get away with the luxuries they have been given," he stated.

They said the same crap about those of us in Gen X. Let me guess, 20 years from now someone will write an article that says Gen Z is lazy and has no focus.

Ever think it's an age thing and not a generational thing?
