The Generation Gap-An Easy Fix

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

I hear talk lately about the generation gap. It keeps getting bigger and I blame child labor laws. After being coddled their entire lives, today’s youth are suddenly thrown into the work place once they get kicked out of college. This just isn’t good enough.

Child Labor Laws came about to protect the elderly and the washed-up from having their jobs taken by children. These incompetent chumps are being protected from ambitious young people, who would steal their jobs as coal miners, milk delivery personnel, and oil executives if not for these outdated and cumbersome regulations.

Child Labor Laws are causing the generation gap to widen and need to be repealed. Before these laws, generations of men and women would work side by side as equals. Each generation being immersed in the rich culture of the previous generation, as they came of age in the work place. Today these laws have caused generations to fall out of sync with each other, with each generation inventing its own hodgepodge of untempered ideals. This is the source of most of today’s problems.

These laws only benefit people whose jobs could be done by children, and hurt society as a whole. Seriously, if you call out sick and get replaced by an eight year old, that’s your problem.

Hey Kid, Get Back to Work! Don\'t let some geezer take your job.
