According to a recent survey, employers are finding that recent college graduates — who are mostly from Generation Y and Z — are too emotionally immature to enter the work force.
The survey conducted by the Mary Christie Institute found that more than half of young, graduate-age people self-reported “emotional or mental health challenges,” according to The College Fix.
“Our findings show that once in the workplace, young people continue to struggle mentally and emotionally,” the think tank wrote.
The survey found that 43 percent of those individuals with mental health said they had anxiety while 31 percent reported having depression.
“Women reported worse mental health than men, with 68% of males self-reporting good or excellent mental health, compared to 45% of females,” the survey reported.
It isn’t much of a surprise, really. The most recent three generations (granted Gen Alpha are still no older than teens at this point) are a seriously weak bunch. Whiney, self-interested, uninformed, TikTok star wannabes, who produce nothing for society are clearly useless to the business world.
They grew up being told how wonderful and special they were but now they are finding out that they can’t expect Internet stardom and millions of dollars at 20 years old. And they are too emotionally wrecked by reality to go on.
Granted, it is common for one generation to say subsequent generations are less thans. But, seriously. This time it seems like the detractors are right.
