[infographic] Generation Screwed: It sucks to be a millenial

Generation Screwed
Created by: Online Graduate Programs

As a millenial myself, I can tell you why I personally have no loyalty to my employer: they have no loyalty to their employees. We have adopted their attitude towards us. Don't like it? Tough shit.

Capitalism is a bitch, ain't it? It's eat or be eaten, and we've adapted. It's fuck or be fucked, and we've adapted. Burn or be burned, and we've adapted.

We've learned to play your game. We watched as our parents, who came up when you could work a job and make a career out of it, had their jobs downsized, outsourced, mechanized, eliminated, etc. They sat idly by. And they got fucked over.

We're not going to repeat our parent's mistakes.

Why should we be grateful to barely scrap by? Why should we be grateful to have no benefits? Why should we be grateful to work tirelessly while continually sinking further into debt?

You created us. You fuck us over, and we will fuck you over. We are the product of every cost-cutting, labor-outsourcing, underhanded management technique you have ever pulled. And now it's coming back to bite you in the ass.

Boo fucking hoo.
