Baby boomers get sick of hearing young people bellyache about the grim jobs situation. They cite studies proving that entitled, self-absorbed Millennials make the worst employees ever. They recall with belligerent pride how they themselves withstood the Arab oil embargo, stagflation, the soaring interest rates of the Carter years. But Baby Boomers conveniently forget that it didn’t set anyone back a year’s salary to go to college in the 1960s and 1970s, and that college graduates back then were not entering a work force filled with other college grads.
When I got my first job in 1973, I was surrounded by high-school dropouts. They weren’t even especially bright high-school dropouts. So it was possible to make a vertical move quickly.
