From A Job
Older generations such as the Lost , GI, and older members of the Silent generation portend that being terminated/fired from a job is worse than death and a career killer. They further maintain that once a person is terminated/fired, he/she has no career future to think of and at best, have to settle for any job available. My father, who was from the GI generation, asserted that once a person is terminated from a job, no employee wants you because you are damaged goods so to speak. However, younger members of the Silent generation, Boomers, Generation Xers and Yers portend that being terminated/fired is just the beginning and as one door closes, another opens. They further believe that being fired as a way to notify you that maybe you are in the wrong job. What do you think?
My generations' views on termination or being layed off is that it is a career killer. But having this happen to me twice, both after 10 years of employment, I survived. I am happy to say that I now do exactly what I want and get paid 7 times as much. But as for having a traditional career, I no longer have one, so in that way my generation is correct. Hope this answered your question.

In a conversation about racism in America today, a young relative, made this statement'"It is worse than it was six years ago!"It took me a moment to catch his drift. He is a young, (many times naive), anti-Obama conservative and I took his comment to mean it is worse since Pres....

David Brooks in his latest nytimes column seems ready to conceal class war with generational war. None of these puppet pundits want to look at America's vast and useless military empire and the crushing sums it takes to sustain it. Comments? link to article: ...
