Gen Z Is Not Lazy, Gen Z Has Alternatives



People are dictated by their options and GenZ realizes they have many, now, the economy can change and unemployment may spike and thus rendering options to be not as fruitful or easy but the macro stands regardless, GenZ has way more Options because of the scale of the modern internet and I think that means they are thoughtful of those options not lazy!

    Here's the thing! WE enabled that with our tech advancements. And good for them! I applaud younger people for being able to make money in different environments and for them to be thinking about ways to make money that we didn't have 10, 20, 30 years ago.

    This confirms everything I thought when I left Walmart, they had given me 30 minutes of instruction, which for the most part was telling me how to stock, which is the least important aspect of being a Walmart stocker, there was 5 different aspects of the job that I was never informed of, so when the days came to do those things I was completely I’ll prepared and wound up being labeled a lazy and poor quality worker, when the issue was management. I even took the initiative to find and make some friends so they could teach me a little, which was successful for a little bit until I realized they were also trained poorly. A lot of these jobs that Gen Z have available to them aren’t built to take on young employees which I foresee is a possible cause of the eventual downfall of our society.

    Toxic work environments pre date the boomers – we had slavery remember? Child labor, 16 hr work days, no days off oh n rampant racism, sexism, homophobia.

    Gen z is a split
    There’s a large portion of entitled, lazy, dopamine intoxicated, can’t even have the attention span to read a book, and arrogant teens that believe they’ll succeed someday somehow but without a plan

    Then there’s the other that works harder than the rest, on par if not harder than previous gens, create plans and don’t allow social media to consume them. They consume the part of it that will lead them towards the direction in their life they want to head into.

    It's a good point, but gen x and y got the lazy lable too so I'm not sure I'm convinced. Just because a few have been successful in controversial ways, doesn't mean the whole generation has it figured out. Gen x and y got a lot of grief for their worthless majors in college and complaining about why their degrees aren't giving them a living. They got dissed because they thought they were entitled to careers so they didn't work because they didn't want a job outside of their degree and perceived careers. So it's definitely still happening and I think both points are valid.

    No, they're not lazy. They're just not willing to work for the same reasons. Getting yelled at and treated like shit from the customer and then turning around to get yelled at and treated like shit from your boss for asking them a question to get an answer for the customer. Then put on top of that, they've been told their whole lives to put off on creating a family. Guess what? They don't have little mouths to feed. They don't have to put up with anyone's bs for the sake of keeping a job. So yes they do demand a better work environment otherwise you can do it yourself. Good luck making more money with 0 employees.

    "that boomers created"…this is the problem with gen z…their lazy thinking. if it weren't for boomers and the patriarchy and western society etc. you would be sleeping in a mud hut without electricity and internet. Speaking of privileges…

    A boomer is affecting my money/raises and promotions though… I sometimes feel I’m not doing enough. I work my ass off only for someone to take my work ethic for granted.

    Great points. It’s nice to know that technology has made so many opportunities possible.

    It’s down to the individual and their upbringing, however the socials (mainly Tiktok) shares a lot of Marxist/‘woke’ ideology that is chipping away at the social ‘norms’ in attempt to bring down capitalism and capitalists such as the Gary Vee’s of this world. The stereotypical Gen Z characters will not be interacting with you Gary.

    Its not they see they have options. Its that they are unexperienced in life and ultimate the softest generation ever. They whine cry about everything. It doesn't mean they see options other generations don't. Its they are beyond soft plain and simple. Not everyone can be at the top and they all think they can and when they cant they throw fits at the normal jobs they had to get to make it more comfortable instead of having to actually work. Trying working a 100 hrs a week on salary, 7 days a week with no appreciation or raises, no medical and running your bodying into the ground the profit of the owner. Then you can throw a fit. Also they are just as greedy as anyone before while being poorer then any before. The fact that they carry a 1000 plus computer in their pocket that they NEED shows that and then the need to buy a new one every year, plus over paying for shoes etc. They are just as dumb and greedy as every one before its just that they are softer then any before.

    So the kid at the store standing around on his/her phone that gets exasperated when I ask them to help me find the item I'm having trouble locating isn't lazy? WELL SLAP ME SILLY!! All joking aside, I don't think lazy is the correct term. I don't really know what the correct term is. But, I can tell you what I see, and that's a lack of proper work ethic. Not from everyone. But, there's a lot. We can't all get rich from social media.

    That may be true and it's great for everyone but the one thing that a lot of this young and generation lacks is respect for the older folks went through maybe we were the same when we were young who knows but respecting each other the main thing and all this craziness that's coming our way soon

    Genz only care about themselves and dont contribute to society , gen z translates to LAZY

    Not everyone can become influencers/TikTok stars or tech moguls. The worry imo is, can gen Z work the essential jobs, ie police, trades, teachers and doctors. Right now they can’t work a single job without having a breakdown.

    I personally subscribe to the idea that both democrats and republicans want what is best for this country and we shouldn't demonize another person or group of people because they believe in a different way to make our country better, because at the end of the day, they are our fellow Americans

    You’re very right, because if not, they will keep on going to find more. I love learning how our socioeconomic and generational structures and lack there of; each generation has something new to offer, that they spotted or learned from another source, not their homes. We’re not being products of our environments anymore, we see and want more.

    Seriouslt disconnected from reality lol gen Z is lazy. Showing up 2 hours late to work, playing video games all day, no aspirations or desire to even look for income, the belief they will be famous and make money on tiktok. Nahhh dude i work and am around Gen Z all day, sounds nice on paper but these aint the facts.

    Just watched a video today of a gen Z barista melting down and literally crying because he was asked to work an 8 hour “double shift”, and demanding Starbucks unionize.

    Apparently 4 hours is now a full work day in gen Z.

    People are dictated by their options and GenZ realizes they have many, now, the economy can change and unemployment may spike and thus rendering options to be not as fruitful or easy but the macro stands regardless, GenZ has way more Options because of the scale of the modern internet and I think that means they are thoughtful of those options not lazy!
