And yours is the STUPIDEST!
Yeah, I wonder how many of the generation who are whining started out working for $1 an hour, two weeks annual holidays, NO stress leave, very little sick leave, no maturnity leave, 10 minute coffee breaks, no flex shifts.
Oh yeah! I remember when these and many other 'intitlements' these whiners take for granted were merely a gleam in someone's eye. They have no idea how folks like Tommy Douglas put themselves out on a limb for public ridicule to champion causes like this and how many union strikes etc., it took to get these and many other of the benefits these whiners are acccessing on a daily basis as if they simply grew on the trees in their neighbourhood.
This Kershaw clown is sitting in his vastly over-priced condo with leaking windows making these idiotic comparisons as though they're generic across the land. There have been real estate spikes for every generation and usually a lot more than one or two. I remember well mortage rates in the double digits with no deflection of blame for having made a bad business decision and crying on anyones shoulder being comletely out of the question.
Hey Kershaw; your students can't afford a condo in downtown Vancouver; well tell 'em to rent a walk-up but, if they just have to have a little house and white picket fence to go along with the lease car and two cel-phones with minutes paid by credit cards, tell 'em move to PEI instead of enabling the little darlings to think of someone else being at fault.
