As I read this article, I thought of my son. My son, now a college freshman, has never had a job. This is one thing I wish I had pushed harder for over the years. But, being across the country, there’s only so much letters, phone calls, and infrequent visits can do.
So now we have a generation or two not accustomed to working. Corporations, in order to build shareholder wealth, now recruit from retirement homes, churches, and AARP. Who would have thought it?
Well, hopefully my son reads this post. Son: you better get good grades because school is your only job now. If you perform poorly, do not expect me to further subsidize the endeavor. At that point you will have to do the unthinkable: get a job to pay for your own food and shelter.
