Read Our New Piece at Time.com - Dear Graduates

Over at Time.com today, Ashley and I introduce you to some college-aged students who are working nearly full time while they also are taking a full courseload of school. We nicknamed them "Big Macs" - like the double decker sandwich, a double load of college and McJobs.

There are a surprising number of Big Macs out there. If you're one of these hard-working members of the new generation, we'd love to hear from you. Write me at pobronson@pobronson.com and tell me what you do, how you manage it, and why you do it.

Just out of curiosity...

Isn't it typical for the older generation to perceive our "younger" generation as young 'uns who have no idea what hard work is like?

Is it possible that the quote about work was said as a joke?

yes, every generation gets sneered at. But no, when Hillary made the comment, it wasn't a joke. She was speaking to a group of business people, and it was part of several comments she made that expressed her concern this generation wasn't ready. That said, I'm sure she got a laugh.
