When I came across Jenna Goudreau’s recentForbes article, “Why We Need to Take 20-Somethings Seriously,” I expected to read a rebuttal of the negative stereotypes often tossed around to describe Gen Y.
That’s not what I got. Instead, I found myself reading a lecture aimed at 20-somethings themselves. While Goodreau admits that my generation has graduated college with mounds of student loan debt into one of the worst economies in decades, she also blames us for the fact thathalf of us are unemployed or underemployed. Stop being an indecisive wannabe rebel, she seems to be saying. Stop working at Starbucks, stop pushing back your career, and go get yourself a real job.
