Clueless Boomer offers rude work advice for privileged millennials and Gen Z

Hurtfully mentions the old “work ethic”

I refuse to work more than 40 hours a week. Or do work that’s outside of my job description without a pay raise or promotion. Will that hurt my career goals?

I’m smarter than my boss. Why can’t I take his job?

I get emails from my boss — even my colleagues — before 8:30 am and after 5 pm and even on weekends. That’s me time! Why should I answer them?

OK, Boomer, what pearls of wisdom can you bestow to motivate burned-out quiet quitters? What’s the secret to a low-stress yet rewarding career?
