Think of three people you know from the different generations discussed in the chapter. Of
these people, who is and is not satisfied with their work and jobs?
Explain why they are or
are not satisfied. Refer back to the generational differences and values in the chapter. To
what extent did “generational differences” contribute in your analysis of the individuals’
work satisfaction? To what extent did “ethical reasons” affect their work satisfaction?
Create a “for” and “against” set of arguments regarding the “employment-at-will” doctrine
in the present economic and demographic environment. After you make a complete set of
arguments, which position do you support? Did your views change after this exercise? Why
or why not?
