I don’t know if it’s just me, or if others feel this way too, but there is a problem with this current generation.
Somehow we’ve gotten this ideology that everything needs to be handed to us on a silver platter. We’ve lost the hard working mentality that our fathers and grandfathers had before us. Their work ethic is what drove this nation to be what it is (not what it is becoming) now. We’ve lost the drive to become great and are content with the bare minimum. It’s what pushes people to rally and protest for minimum wage to be raised to $15 an hour, not realizing that in doing so it can essentially ruin the economy. It’s this thought that as long as we’re making more money, then everything will be okay. What we don’t understand is that when the minimum wage is raised that dramatically, a couple of things can happen. Either we will lose our jobs or our employers will cut our hours to equal what we were making before. We want to do the same amount of work and get paid more for it. We’ve become lazy.
The people of this generation are going to be the next leaders of this nation and we’re not ready. We need to relight the spark that our predecessors once had. If we don’t, then our very well beings are at risk. In short, we need to get out shit together and start acting like adults.
That’s about it, and for now, I’m signing off.
