The post 12 Reasons The Workday Our Parents Created Will Never Satisfy Gen-Y appeared first on Insurance Guide To Everything.

Millennials get a bad rap. Lazy seems to be our defining adjective these days.

People say we dont want to work, and I think theyre right.

We dont want to work in the same way our parents did, running on a hamster wheel toward the finish line, adhering to what we are told to do and when we are told to do it.

No, what we want is to find our own way, work according to our own schedules and make our own dreams come true, not someone elses.

Now, with the Internet and easy access to education and knowledge, we are closer than ever to reaching our goals.

These are all the reasons why I want to work for myself and work from home:

1. The only annoying andnosycoworkers I want to deal with are my cats.

I would bet most of us have experienced that one coworker who is just a nightmare to have in the office: the one who whines, complains, asks for attention and keeps a close eye on what youre doing so that he or she can run and tell your boss every time you slip up.

I dont need people like that disrupting my work flow. The only annoyances Im willing to deal with these days are my cats laying across my important papers and pressing random buttons when they walk across my laptop.


2. I want to take naps when Im tired. I don’t want to have to rely on coffee to keep me awake.

Sometimes, our bodies feel worn out. When we feel tired, we dont need coffee. What we need is sleep. However, people working in offices and stores dont get the opportunity to recharge with a nap.

Instead, they must force their bodies to stay awake with the 9-to-5 drug of choice, caffeine. With its frequent crashes and addictive properties, I dont want to have to depend on coffee to get me through my workday.


3. I want to finish my work efficiently. I don’t want to have to find things to keep me looking busy for an entire eight hours.

At my last job as a teacher, I finished teaching my classes at 12 pm. But I wasnt allowed to leave until 4 pm.

Luckily for me, I had freelance work to do. But others didnt.

They spent their time watching videos online and browsing the Internet. Many employees are required to stay at work for eight hours, but can actually finish their work in half the time.

I would rather have the freedom to finish my work efficiently and spend the remainder of my day doing what I please.


4. I want the person paying me to only have something to say about the final product, not about how I do my work.

Managers and bosses are always trying to control the way in which people accomplish their work.

Atone of my previous jobs, the manager made sure to voice exactly how he wanted our desks to look and how our lesson plans were meant to physically appear.

He would even peek into our classrooms to make sure our lessons looked active and fun.

I want my boss to judge me on my final work, not whether I achieved it with a smile on my face or with blue ink instead of black.


5. I dont want to commute because its a waste of time and money.

Formerly living in suburbia, I had to commute to and from work every day like most people. Depending on the distance you live away from your job, this valuable time is wasted on the commute instead of being put toward getting quality work done.

The money spent on gas, car insurance, repairs or public transit fees ends up eating significantly into your monthly wage.

Walking from your bedroom to your home office is free and takes no time at all.


6. I want to wake up naturally when my body has gotten the rest it needs.

Waking up to an alarm clock every morning is not the most pleasant way to start a day.

I dont want to be forced to get out of bed at a certain time. I want to give my body the rest it needs and deserves.

When I am in charge of the hours I work, I can go to bed and wake up whenever I feel like it, but still get my work finished.


7. I dont want to live an existence where I spend five days of the week wishing for the weekend.

I used to have this one co-worker who would always start each day with a countdown to Friday. I think it is a strange and horrible existence to spend five days out of the week just wishing and waiting for two days of freedom.

I want to be in charge of my own work days, and be able to take a Tuesday off if that is what I feel like doing.


8. I dont want to ever have a case of the Mondays.

The Monday blues are a real thing. I used to spend half of my weekend just dreading going back to work on Monday.

Even the morning of, I would feel depressed, wanting to quit rather than deal with another start of the week.

I want to feel good about when I work, not feel like a slave to the Monday through Friday routine.


9. I want to eat whenever the hell Im hungry, not have a specified lunch break.

I love to eat.

When I get hungry, I find it hard to focus on my work. Working in an environment where I am told exactly when I am allowed to eat just doesnt sit well with me.

There have been countless times I had to skip breakfast because I would have been late getting to work or days when I felt too weak with hunger to concentrate on getting anything done.

I want to eat when Im hungry, not when someone tells me I’m allowed to.


10. I want to have the freedom to work in my underwear because its more comfortable. Buying clothes for work is a waste of my income.

I dont want to wear a uniform, and I dont want to spend the money I am earning on specific clothes for my job.

I want to roll out of bed and get my work done in my bra and underwear if I choose. Spending money on work clothes is a waste of funds and spending even a second making myself look work ready is a waste of time that could be spent getting work done.


11. I want to be able to swap my work day on Monday for Sunday, so I can go to that event, enjoy a beautiful sunny day or spend time with a friend whos in from out of town.

When I used to waitress, my normal hours were nights and weekends.

I missed out on so many parties, birthday dinners and family outings because I had to work. When I was teaching in Thailand, I was surrounded by a community of people who worked from home.

As I was friends with many of them, I constantly missed out on workshops, lunch dates and coworking sessions due to my normal 7:30 am to 4 pm hours.

I want the freedom to switch work days around so I can attend events and gatherings when I feel like it.


12. I dont need anyone to tell me when and how often I can take vacations or be sick.

Sick days? Vacation days?

Why is it up to someone else to decide when I dont feel fit for work or am mentally exhausted and need some time off?

I dont want to drag myself out of bed when I have a migraine because I already used up all of my sick days, and I certainly dont want to cram in friends, family and travel into a two-week vacation once a year.

I want to work from home, and I want to work for myself.

The 9-to-5, benefits package and job security are not for me.

Times have changed. The Internet has been and will continue to transform the way people work.

In my eyes, this antiquated model is on its way out.

A recent Facebook campaign for a sick baby has so far proved to be a successful way for his family to raise money and awareness.

Baby Easton was born with a rare condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) that is the result of a defect in the connective tissue of the skin and mucous membranes that causes the skin to be so fragile that the slightest friction can cause serious problems inside and outside the body. His skin is covered in open wounds and he is given morphine because of the pain. His parents started a Facebook campaign on Aug. 26 to gain funding because Easton’s treatments will not be covered by their insurance. They have already amassed more than 26,000 likes, and as of Wednesday, $141,000 in donations for his medical expenses, according to Syracuse.com.

Some parents of sick children have turned to Facebook to gain money and support for their childrens’ plights. Even more foundations for children and the sick have turned to Facebook to raise awareness and funds.

Despite all the negative statistics about using Facebook, and even some scams, this goes to show that the social network can be used for good.

Have you ever donated to a good cause through a Facebook campaign? Tell us in the comments.

Look, I hate to be a complainer, because I know I have it pretty good here in this museum.

1. But…. sometimes it’s just like, you just want to chill and start a fire with Grooook in private.

2. You’re allowed to decorate your own walls, but the museum staff won’t give you proper paint rollers.

3. Don’t even get me started on the tourists in fanny packs always stopping by.

4. It’s annoying when you’re just trying to roast some mammoth with your friends and people are taking photos of you like you’re Justin freakin’ Bieber or something.

5. The prima donna woolly mammoth is always trying to upstage you to visitors. Kids go nuts for the mammoth, you can’t even compete!

6. And I have to say it: the food sucks.

7. Is it too much to ask for one of those shower pouf things? They’re like 99 cents.

8. You’ve got this great spear, but the guards won’t actually let you use it.

9. Everyone’s always asking you if you know this guy:

Michael Loccisano / Getty Images

10. And it’s like, “uh, no I’ve been stuck here in this corner with my rocks since 1978, I haven’t exactly had time to meet famous insurance spokesmen.”

11. Between you and me, after a few years, the ennui just sets it. My heart just isn’t in it. I’m ready for the Bronze Age.

12. Lastly I know this is TMI, but there are NO good waxing places in this museum.

Oh yeah… there is a plus side: the babes. Awwoooga!

This ridiculously non-ironic “isn’t it ironic” spin first started with David Axelrod, and now the “White House Director of Progressive Media and Online Response,” Jesse Lee, is using the argument.

Many tweeters, not unlike people trying to create an account at HealthCare.gov, just can’t buy it:

Warning that something would result in a train wreck and later pointing out that it appears to be resulting in a train wreck is neither ironic nor hypocritical, no matter how hard they spin that top.

http://twitter.com/#!/jtLOL/status/392313159546982400

According to White House flacks such as Lee and Axelrod, the new scapegoat for the Obamacare implementation incompetence is going to be “unforeseen hypocritical demand for the product from the Right.” No doubt some mainstream media outlets will consider that argument reasonable enough not to question.

@justkarl @JimmyPrinceton Are you saying a JuiceVoxer is both two-faced and disingenuous and not especially intelligent?

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) October 8, 2014

Back in 2011 Sarah Kliff wrote this about the effects of Obamacare:

The cost of switching to an insurance exchange

For the employer, dropping coverage is a pretty decent deal: A company would see its health care costs reduced by over 40 percent. They don’t drop to zero, however, since the employer would still be on the hook for the fines that come along with not offering coverage.

But for the employee, it’s a pretty lousy deal. Lockton ran the numbers, using data on how much employers pay for health insurance now and how much health insurance on the exchanges is projected to cost.They found that employers foot a significantly larger chunk of the insurance bill than the federal government would, even with the new subsidies they’d receive. The firm predicts their premiums would increase anywhere from 79 to 125 percent if they lose employer coverage and have to go to the exchange. There’s such a big variation because exchange subsidies vary by income: Those who earn less are eligible for a larger subsidy.

But today…

Tens of thousands of Walmart workers are about to lose their health insurance — and here's why it's good news: http://t.co/EUmHPxyVus

— Vox (@voxdotcom) October 8, 2014

Sarah Kliff’s new outlook on low wage employees losing their insurance coverage.

There are obvious benefits to getting health insurance at work. For one, employer-sponsored insurance is not taxed, meaning that every dollar of compensation provided as medical coverage stretches further. Individual market plans, meanwhile, are purchased with post-tax dollars. The only way to get in on the tax exemption is to buy coverage at work.

But for low-wage workers, Obamacare  has introduced a new and big drawback to the employer  insurance. Namely, anybody who gets access to affordable coverage at work is barred from getting subsidies through the new exchanges. This is even true for people who don’t buy insurance at work; just the act of getting offered employer coverage blocks individuals from using getting financial help.

I'm wondering when @voxdotcom will realize that their piece confirmed what the right predicted before "A"CA passage: expensive & costs jobs

@exjon @voxdotcom just imagine them 8 years ago "4.6% unemployment, and why that's a bad thing"

Well, well, well … isn’t this interesting? ABC News is reporting that organizers for last year’s Democratic National Convention have filed a police report claiming a grand total of $465,142.97 in missing electronics.

Scamming? The DNC? Heaven forbid! As we all know, the DNC is committed to doing things by the book! Although an appraiser working for the insurance company might take issues with the organizers’ listed claims:

A reportedly stolen 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop? $75,537. The price listed on the Apple website is $1,199. A lost iPhone? $30,503. A lost Blackberry? $54,250.

Other items reported to have gone missing at the convention included two iPads worth around $15,000 each, laptops listed at $40,000, $34,000 and $25,000 each, and other miscellaneous items worth far more than their list price.

The report claims that 40 items were reported lost and one item – the most highly valued one, the $75,000 MacBook Pro – was stolen.

Man! That must’ve been one hell of a laptop.

We know that Democrats have problems when it comes to math, but are they serious with this? Because if ABC’s report is true, this situation smells more than a little fishy:

Move along, folks. Nothing to see here.
