Here's my take on the same subject. http://wetfeetpr.blogspot.com/2005/07/generation-entitlement.html.

I think one of the reasons we feel so 'entitled' is b/c college is harder than ever to get into and the same time it is at an all time expensive high. Then when we get out (30g's in debt) we have to work for free for a year or two interning before we are offered a small salary. Sure, we feel entitled to a bit more than that. We've been told our whole lives that going to school will get us a good paying job. I realize that it will in the long run, but initially it is a shock...


That's exactly what it is (RE: The Bailey Blog): I've seen workaholics bury their entire lives in jobs and come out wanting. If life is a car, bear with me here, then my job is the fuel that gets me where I'm going. It's the difference between living to work, and working to live. And in my last days, I will be thankful to have pursued the latter. I certainly won't miss a more prestigious nameplate, and I won't regret the investment I made in everything else: wife, kids, family and friends.

  • I have worked in politics, public policy and strategic communications for over 30 years. I was recently awarded a doctorate in Australian politics at the University of Sydney. My thesis was on the (changing) relationship between the ALP and unions. I have been blogging since November 2003 and over the past decade I have written many articles on politics, public relations and social media for newspapers, magazines and websites. I love literature particularly John McGahern and James Joyce. The header photo is of the Clarence River taken before dawn at Ulmarra in 2012.
