Actually IMO older generations are more entitled. They get angry at thinggs like outsourcing instead of admitting they are replaceable and should have worked harder to make themselves more valuable than someone in a third world country.
I haven't come across that.
I disagree about "should have worked harder to make themselves more valuable than someone in a third world country".
Basic economics shows that, due to the global nature of business now and in the future, all a third world country needs is the infrastructure to begin down the road of becoming a first world country.
India is a perfect example. They started with a telephone infrastructure and helpdesks. Now big companies like IBM, HP, etc have skilled workers based in India. It's not just the support people now, it's Developers, Project Managers, Program Managers, Project Executives!
Big business will always invest wherever there is a cheaper workforce, as long as there is the infrastructure to be able to support it.
IT use to pay very big dollars in the 90's. It now pays less than 1/2 of what it did back then (in Australia atleast), and the cost of living here is now more than 5 times what it was back then.
As one of the older generation compared to those in their twenties I consider myself extremely lucky to have been able to start working when I did, and have enough to purchase property when I did, and in no way do I feel "entitled". Everything I have I worked extremely hard for. Maybe you have a different definition for entitled? But I consider anyone that gets anything for nothing and then assumes they'll keep getting anything for nothing as "entitled".
If I was starting now as a 20-30 year old there is no conceivable way that I could afford to buy a house on a big block of land in Sydney. The average buy in 45mins out of central Sydney is now $1,000,000 (more than double what it was in the mid 2000's.
The best work to be in these days in some kind of local labor work. Electrician, Plumber, Carpenter. Especially in a developing area. You will never be offshored, the need for reskilling is not that high, and the pay is good and frequent. ...and the requirement for unpaid overtime doesn't exist...AND the amount of money you make is directly proportional to how hard you work. The older generation (to me) that I've seen have worked their arses off, and have had their jobs given to multiple, less-skilled people in a cheaper geo. If they're grumpy about that, I can understand why. It's justified and not anywhere near a sense of "entitlement".
Hell, even I'm disappointed that I missed out on the good old days of working hard for one company, and rising through the ranks and achieving better pay each time. It just doesn't happen anymore. If you want more money, you have to leave the company and go to a competitor. Large companies appear to put little value on people now. It's just the way things are, but not the way things should be. If you dedicate your life, as some of the older generation have, there should be some reward. But there isn't.
