  1. Utah et al: I don’t know if other members of RNL have experienced the same phenomena that I have been finding over the last 20-years or so. I’ve hired and worked with a variety of employees and partners in my various business ventures over the years, and my policy has always been to hire the individual best qualified for whatever position I needed to fill, regardless of race, gender or any of the other issues that have no impact on my bottom line. I’ve always felt that was my duty to my investors, which has usually included myself. That approach has always worked out well and it is my intention to continue it in the future.

    My problem has been my difficulty identifying young male candidates who are willing to work hard as part of a high-performance team, without whining or complaining about long hours and demanding projects. I have not had the same problem with female employees, who have seemed to be getting smarter, tougher and more capable. Of course women are on average smarter than men, although male intelligence is distributed differently, with larger numbers of male geniuses and idiots, but that does not account for the sense of privilege and poor work habits that younger guys seem to bring to the job more often than not.

    Pajama Boy reminds me of dozens of young guys who I have chosen not to hire or had to fire within a short period of time. The Pajama Boy package seems to include an effeminate personna, emotional immaturity, a refusal to demonstrate the willingness to work hard and long that most start-ups require, a resistance to engaging their intellectual and emotional abilities in their work, and a terrible pattern of disrupting the work of others by constantly whining and poisoning the organization’s atmosphere. I’m looking for feedback on whether others have encountered the same issues, where this unfortunate trend is coming from and what has anyone done to correct this behavior that has worked. I’ll appreciate any observations that anyone can provide. CDE

      • Kells: I may be obtuse, but I don’t follow your post. Could you expand for the benefit of the slow-witted like myself? CDE

    • Charles:

      Same here – in America. I had a far better time hiring in the UK, but it may have been that the people we hired had already had a baptism by fire because they had been through apprenticeship programs.

      And Kells is just screwing with you – she means that she and the other girls have emasculated men to the point that women are better in comparison. She is being facetious about her involvement but the feminists have succeeded in turning young man into a bunch of Nancy boy ne’er-do-wells.

      Plus, she still wants to sleep with my mind.

    • Charles,
      I have found it so even with Young Fellas who Aren’t effeminate actually.

      That’s what made Ashton Kutcher’s recent multiple comments so Compelling…..because the youngest Generations haven’t been given any sense of work ethic or Pride really in doing a Good job. They have nothing invested in a personal level. Even B Spears new song hints at it I think !

      • Don: I was actually making the sexual ambiguity comparison to PAJAMA BOY, rather than the entire millennial generation. The PB persona is hilarious…an adult American male, hanging out in his parents’ house in an adult version of infant “snuggles,” drinking hot chocolate, a children’s beverage, and showing no sign of ambition or energy. This is a White-face version of Barack Hussein Obama…no home, no job, no problem! That the Federal government would choose PAJAMA BOY and a chorus line of gay men dancing in their underpants to promote Obamacare to the Milllenials is an interesting commentary on the Obama Administration’s take on American masculinity. CDE

  2. CDE, You sum up the PAJAMA BOY concept so well, but Obama or someone in his administration must have deemed the commercial brilliant. The administration,s thinking gives me the shivers.
