    What are the ways that Americans have lost their sense of a work ethic and having a can do

    attitude?  Do you further believe that American society and culture has become more entitled and far less dependent on a work ethic?

    It starts with the message that people are receiving both in the media and from our politicians.  There seems to be a constant drumbeat of hopelessness. "You can't beat the corporations."  or "American is owned by the rich."  Ridiculous.  It provides excuses for people to do nothing: don't vote, don't work, and don't contribute.  President Obama was supposed to bring a message of hope and the future, instead he has laid the groundwork for a generation of young people to have built in excuses (and I'm looking at you too Bernie Sanders).

    I think many people are disillusioned by the system.  Wages have barely gone up and people that are working full-time, and sometimes two full-time jobs, still can't manage to get by. It makes people give up hope.

    Not to mention the recession really changed things.  I saw excellent workers laid off and mediocre workers kept on because they were related to a manager or brown-nosed their way to the top.  It sends a negative message to the workers that are still there.
