There’s no doubt the generation gap is hurting organizations and employees – what are you doing that your Gen Y workers hate and how can you change?

    All we are looking for is a purpose to the work we do

    All this sounds good if unemployment is low. But it's not!

    Gen Y - Be careful watch what you ask for or you may find your options "totally open".

    Regardless of what you think, every generation before you thought they needed a purpose in their lives or work.

    You've heard of the Peace Corp? We all wanted to work for them years ago - and make a difference.

    In this job market, you are lucky to have a job and it will be that way for many years to come.

    This generation does have an advantage in that many of the previous generations were force to do mind numbing work which is now done by machines.

    Everyone wanted to work for the peace corps but not that many people really did it. I think most of us just want to know the company we work for shares our values. It's not about making a difference once in a big way, it's about little differences every day. Not to mention rescue the planet, economy etc. from the shit Baby Boomers and Gen X put them through.

    Although there is always the talk of "over-generalizing" when referring to an entire generation, I thought this article made some good points. I would like to find some information, similar to this only that applies to dealing with a unionized workforce. It would be interesting to see if/how the younger generations have impacted collective agreements.
