Check out this terrific column by Emily Matchar in Saturday’s Washington Post, “How those spoiled millennials will make the workplace better for everyone.” Yes, yes, yes, so much of what we reflexively see as wrong is actually very right when viewed from an evolutionary perspective. Matchar offers a wry and powerful defense of the Milliennial Generation and takes a keen look at the arising of an ever more humane work environment where eventually, in the sacred world to come, we will all get to be spoiled brats. Thesis quote:
… through their sense of entitlement and inflated self-esteem, they’ll make the modern workplace adapt to them. And we should thank them for it. Because the modern workplace frankly stinks, and the changes wrought by Gen Y will be good for everybody.
