Millennials' ability, ambition comes into question following new polls: 'Go out and get a job'
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, conversations around workplace burnout and mental health are coming to the forefront. One of the groups leading the charge to bring these issues to light is millennials.
But are some millennials taking matters too far?
Millennials, or those born between 1981 and 1996, are coming under fire after several recent polls appear to point out flaws within the generation's work ethic. One new Fortune poll shows that 35% of millennials across America rely on their parents to pay their bills.
Boothe, a millennial, made the point that she plans to raise her own children to be more ‘tough’ than others in her generation. Her co-host, David Webb, examined the issue against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"For the people that showed up, even say, during COVID and went to work when others sat at home and got a check, they're now the bosses. So guess what, kids?" Webb said. "While you sit at home in Mommy and Daddy's basement, playing whatever game and pretending you're the victim, your friend who graduated with you is going to be your boss."
