    Won't put down his fricking phone. Granted he does work when needed but if we have to walk 20 ft, he will pull out his phone and start typing away.

        Tell me you have zero initiative or common sense without saying "I have no intiative or common sense.

        Also add " self respect", what kind of homosexual gets hired where there's literally nothing to do and just shrugs his shoulders and figures its an opportunity to frick off on his phone and still collect a wage, rather than calling bullshit and finding productive work to do with his life?

        Dumb children have always been dumb, but zoomers don't even comprehend the basic life skill of being embarrassed for their own good and ASPIRE to be able to claim victimhood...in this case, for being expected to work when on the clock.

      This. Had a string of them that would scurry off to vape and frick around on their phone instead of their job.
      They'd get fired after a couple of months of this shit when the management realizes it does not normally take eight hours for one oil change, and these guys were making a career of all day oil changes.

        I've caught excavator operators dicking around not paying attention because they're on their phones with a bucket of gravel over our heads.

        threw a rock threw an open window at some fat frick newfie and told him if he's caught using his phone in a machine again he can grab a shovel or find a new job.

        generation doesn't matter, boomer to zoomer they're all guilty.

          This. I got stuck working with a shitty boomer for a while who wouldn't stop complaining about "these kids have their faces in their phones all the fricking time," but whenever he had a chance he was fricking off and calling people, sometimes hour+ length calls.

      > fricking phone
      It’s the same everywhere.
      In software development they put their phone between their wrists in front of their keyboard and leave their hands on the keyboard pretending to type shit while watching entire seasons of tv shows, fill-length feature films, and 4 hour streamed destiny raids

      what has height got to do with it? they mow lawns, clean toilets, paint houses, frame houses, hang drywall, etc. AND THEY DON'T PAY TAXES OR INSURANCE OR WORKER'S COMP AND THEY WORK 80 HRS A WEEK AND DRIVE TO THE JOB SITE THE OTHER 80 HRS OF THE WEEK AND THEY LIVE IN HOVELS 10 TO THE ROOM

      and yet npr says they are only doing work that americans refuse to do.

        NPR doesn’t consider you human unless you work an upper middle class office job.

        So think of a job a white liberal woman doesn’t want to do, plumbing, gun smithing etc

        Those are jobs “Americans” don’t want to do

        Send emails back and forth to other upper middle class peopl in offices and play office politics? Job is safe from South Americans migrating through mexico

    a surprising number of them smoke weed since it was legalized. they say its only "on their own time", but all potheads eventually end up stoned on the job and get canned.
    also they like trying to dictate the conditions they will work in ("I don't go in crawlspaces or on roof" from would be plumbers apprentices).

    Millwright here, we used to get guys who grew up tinkering on cars, bikes or farm machinery. Now we get guys "and grils" who grew up playing xbox. It shows.

      this is one of the worst parts of the electronic entertainment age- the years when kids and teens are able to learn the most and train themselves how to move and think are spend completely wasted mastering useless video game moves
      >inb4 muh hand-eye coordination
      no, that is a complete lie as nothing about tapping buttons on a game controller will translate to any useful skill.

    I want to say same-same but with the shift in demographics thanks to ~~*them*~~ I've noticed that the young "white" apprentices are either motivated by the promise of money or placed on crews by daddy, as long as they are interested in learning the trade I'll work with them.

    The ethnics are measurably more reliable and seek a career to provide for their families. They aren't without their faults though, over-eagerness can lead to some safety issues, especially when you are working 200+ feet in the air and they forget to secure tools with lanyards or even not wearing a damn harness and being tied-off.
