One of the biggest differences in the work ethics between the generation of today’s young adults, and the generation of their parents, is the so-called ‘commitment’ to keep working in the same workplace for years upon years. Younger people, don’t feel obligated to stay in the same place if it does not benefit them, and are ready to job hop as soon as a better offer comes along, creating a resume that is assembled by a collection of jobs that usually do not last more than two years. Their parents, on the other hand, feel the need to stay in the same workplace for sometimes even decades, out of a sense of commitment and perhaps a strong need for a set routine.

Much like the employee in this Reddit story, who has stayed in the same workplace for the past 7 years, and only now feels the effects of that commitment, when he learns that the new inexperienced hire is offered almost the same salary that he makes with all those years of experience. Now he is facing the dilemma that the two generations represent – commitment over personal benefit.
