Work/life balance, vacation time, high salaries, and quick promotions are the work expectations of a large number of university students, according to Inside the entitlement generation, a recent column in Canada’s The Globe and Mail.
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want these things?
As of 8pm Sunday night, more than 460 people have expressed opinions on this topic, some believing that these are good expectations and some believing that they’re not.
Margaret Wente, the column’s author, believes that these expectations are not only unrealistic, but dangerous. She fears that these students, raised by “a generation of adults who believed that kids should never be allowed to fail, or told the truth about their abilities, or that getting what you want is sometimes hard,” are going to get a shock when they enter the workforce.
