Passage Two I have closely watched my generation, know


Passage Two I have closely watched my generation, known as The Millennials, for 29 years now. Joe Stein wrote an extensive piece on Millennials and he remains rather optimistic about our potential. I hesitate to share his optimism because of a paradox (矛盾的现象) we seem to exhibit, namely, that there are more avenues for us to entertain ourselves than ever before, yet we are more bored than ever before. Entertainment has never been more varied. We have more cable channels, television shows, and movies than ever before. Internet providers allow instant viewing of almost any movie or television program ever created. Social drinking and partying are also widely available for Millennials. Every generation develops these habits at a certain age, but Millennials seem to be extending this phase of life as they postpone marriage. Some of this is undoubtedly due to the Great Recession. Millennials are having a difficult time finding jobs; only 47 percent of the 16-to-24-year-olds are employed, the smallest share since government started recording data in 1948. But do Millennials respond to these economic troubles by doing whatever it takes to make ends meet Hardly. In fact, of the four generations Pew Research has data for, the Millennial generation does not cite work ethic (勤奋工作) as distinctive of itself. Millennials want to save the world, but they sit and wait for that world-changing opportunity to be handed to them. Instead of working 2-3 jobs, launching a business, or doing what it takes to succeed, they retreat. Millennials may be the first generation to have a lower standard of living than their parents, but with this response to adversity (逆境), perhaps deservingly so. Much ink has been spilled in management books discussing how to get the most out of these youths in the workplace. Largely, they come to the same conclusion: Millennials are entitled, over-confident, and expect too much too quickly. We should not be surprised. Today’s young adults were raised by parents who made sure to boost their self-esteem at every turn, telling them they could achieve whatever they set their minds to, and handing out prizes for the sixth place.Why are Millennials over-confident about themselves

A.They have been spoiled by their parents.
B.They can always get whatever they expect.
C.They are misguided by management books.
D.They think they are young and energetic.
