Great post. Thanks for sharing. Now is a good time for YPs to open a business or climb the corporate ladder as they build brands and solidify worldviews. I agree that in light of the benefits such as pension accounts and employer-matched 401k contributions that many companies cut out all together as our economy suffered, it makes sense for corporations, as well as small business owners and other employers, to revisit what incentives they are willing to offer to attract and retain quality workers. At the same time, young professionals must realize the benefits of working alongside mature men and women in all industries for an extended period of time. You don't have to work at one place your entire life. But make sure you stay long enough to learn something and gain the respect of those decision makers in older generations that are ready and willing to impart their knowledge to you. As Jason pointed out, the Baby Boomers won't be in the workforce forever. As a member of Generation X, I know those up-and-coming Ys and Zs will look and already are looking to people in our age group for answers. Who are we looking to?
