Government work not what it used to be?

In his “Two for the Road” closing segment of yesterday’s program, radio host Colin Cowherd cited a recent survey suggesting that young people (“Millenials”) are no longer interested in government work. Because fewer young’uns are working in government these days, he reasoned, it obviously has lost its appeal. The government, that vaunted employer of past generations, can’t compete in a world of tech companies and other “hip” operations.


Believe it, Colin, every single person on Earth wants the comfort and security (financial and otherwise) of a government job. The reason young people aren’t getting into the mix is that today’s older generation, as opposed to previous older generations who conveniently died off in their fifties and sixties, refuses to give up those plum jobs in government!
