Good for the younger generation for having the guts to take the risk and seek out any opportunities that come their way. Growing up I was told (taught) by my parents to stay with a company for as long as I can because it was beneficial in the long run. There is a fine line between loyalty and stupidity and no matter the amount of money if you are not happy in your job or with the company for whatever reason it makes sense to leave if you can't work things out or even want too. I personally don't see loyalty as an issue with the younger generation of workers so much as I see not wanting to put forth as much effort, or work as hard but expect to be paid very well for having not done much. And forget about respect that's pretty much gone too.

I think this article rings true. When I see my younger coworkers or my nieces and nephews they are happy with their jobs. But they will also leave the moment a better opportunity comes along. They are not loyal to their employer because employers now are not loyal to their employees.

"Yet despite expressing greater satisfaction with their employers, Mercer found that younger workers are also much more likely to be seriously considering leaving their current jobs."

Not too shocking, really. Younger workers have a much better chance of being rehired than us old trolls :-)
