If would-be Internet sensation cum sociopath Erin Wotherspoon gets offered the book deal or reality show she's so clearly striving for with her terrifying Tumblr page, I will punch the Internet and everyone on it. Her exploitation of the Internet fame cycle and her arguable inability to write, the lack of real focus on her barefaced anti-Semitic remarks is pretty chilling.
it's the state of the current labour market that has triggered much of this Millennial stereotyping. We're often pegged as lazy, unwilling to commit to a stable, full-time job because it means forsaking our supposedly cherished sense of freedom and flexibility. But in reality, so many of us 20 and 30-somethings in Canada and elsewhere have had to struggle to find any job, let alone one that offers secure, full-time hours, pays decently or offers any sort of benefits; this "freedom" has not been chosen, but flung upon us unwittingly.
