Once more commonly associated with the over-40 crowd, dissatisfaction in the workplace is becoming a distinct problem of a younger generation: "A recent survey by The Conference Board found that 64 percent of workers under 25 were unsatisfied with their jobs, versus just 44 percent in 1987 (and still higher than any other demographic in the workforce)." And, when the going gets tough, these tough get going, literally. When dissatisfaction sets in, these Gen-Yers get out, seeking an alternative in a job that allows more creative freedom, and possibly their own business. So, what's the driving force behind it all? As a Gen-Yer do you credit this kind of work dissatisfaction with a fierce sense of individualism that's more characteristic of this generation? Or is it as some suspect, that we feel entitled to a certain job experience and the demands of the corporate world just don't suit? What's your take on the Gen-Y burnout?
