I know, people tend to take the current state of a region and erroneously think it's been that way forever, or that it will stay that way forever. But the vitality of urban areas are fluid -- prone to decline and rebirth, just like everything else.
Employees spend a third of their lives at work but mentally escape regularly because it's compelling and easy. Distractions are a click or tap away. But, as a category, who wastes the most time at work: Millennials, Gen X'ers, or Baby Boomers?
Why is it so important to young employees that they have Internet access during the work day?
Can't they can wait until they go home to check Facebook, Tumblr, or Instagram? They don't need to be connected 24/7... Except, they do.
Gen Y has been deemed everything from narcissistic to entitled -- and I'm being polite. If you can break through the generational banter, you'll find Millennials aren't so different from any generation of young people.
