What homeschooling and job-hopping trends have in common

Blogger Penelope Trunk says she’s noticed a trend among 20-somethings and the number of jobs they quit.

“When I first started writing this blog, Gen Y was just entering the workforce,” she posted. “Their parents had raised them to believe everything they did should have meaning and be fulfilling. So when Gen Y entered the workforce, they thought work was a joke. Because, as we all know, entry-level jobs suck.

“But unlike other generations, ones that paid their dues, Gen Y just quit. And it was elevated to some sort of national crisis that their generation was spoiled, entitled, lazy, immature.”

Trunk goes on to point out how Gen Y, sometimes called Millennials, have changed the workforce.
