We had an interesting conversation this morning as BJ shared with us a chat he had with his son regarding work and having a career. BJ’s son, Joe, and his buds all think that there is no good reason to work so hard in their 20’s due to the economy, and shouldn’t worry about finding a career until his 30’s. They see no reason Are they crazy for thinking they should “live it up” in their 20’s, and then find a career in their 30’s? Personally I think they are…but like BJ said…I was brought up in a different generation. It’s crazy…I was brought up to bust my ass, and work my way up the chain…and that all starts in either your late teens (if you don’t go to college) or your early 20’s. I t worked for me, and for many others…I don’t see why we stopped doing that, hell…if I have a kid, that kid is going to have a paper route when it’s a fetus! It will start right away! At age 1…he/she will be in it’s crib selling lemonade. We got a lot of calls and texts about this topic…here are some of the texts we received:
I agree with Joe. Today's careers seem to be missing the ladder. They are more like multiple stepping stools. I started in retail too, and I'll tell you that it's easy to get stuck in retail. But he does need to get out at some point. It's a life taker down the line
What about when they want to have a family? That pay won't support that.
I work for Boeing and I'm 20! I make 36,0000 a year! I busted my ass working for little manufacturing companies to get to where I Am
The reason 40 and 50 year olds are broke and stupid because they didnt geta career]
Hey guys I just turned 30 and started my career at 24. I busted my ass and now work only 40hrs a week making 70k. Thanks guys..Taylor from Puyallup
Doing nothing is the way to ENSURE you're broke. He is justifying laziness. Degrees are PROVEN to make more money!
Bj your kid is lazy.. its called manual labor try it sometime, college won't get you shit these days
BJ, i started working as a mechanic at boeing 5 years ago. Im 25 and i just bought a house. I think your son is just lazy. I didnt start out making much but you slowly climb up the pay scale. It sounds like your son and his friend is immature. Love has nothing to do with work. Do what you gotta do. I own my own home now and have an awesome life.
