It is not job skills that they lack. It's a good work ethic. Many of them feel that they are entitled, when they are not. There is no entitlement to anything. You have to prove yourself in a job to get to where you want to go. Secondly, many of them have a bad attitude. An employee works for the employer, not the other way around. You work the hours that the employer wants you to work and you don't steal company time - personal time should be during lunch or "after" work, be on time, don't leave early, work your butt off to the best of your ability, don't expect a vacation until you have worked for a full year (annually), don't take time off except for bereavement, and do it all with a smile.
