Top of Mind - Gen Me Outline

THIS IS A GREAT START….KEEP FLUSHING IT OUT WITH MORE ELEMENTS PRIOR TO THE STAND-UP (YOU SHOULD GO BACK TO THE PANEL OF STUDENT OPINION A FEW TIMES TO JUXTAPOSE WHAT THE OTHER GENERATIONS ARE SAYING
CATHARINE

Opening: Circle of students (with Dan) answering the question – what do you expect the workforce to be like in terms of hours and pay?

VO: 2nd year print journalism student Dan Ball is graduating this spring and he feels that his relaxed attitude towards school will translate to the workforce.

Clip - Dan Ball – I just got a job offer from this company, I think it’ll be a lot like school. I’ve slept in everyday of class, and I think it’ll be just as easy at my next job…

VO – A new study says that Generation Me is more focused on the money they make in a shorter amount of time, but such was not the case with Gen X, who had more a of a care for their craft.

CLIP – Grandpa Ray, I worked really hard for everything I have, im still tutoring, I’ll be working until the day I die, I really care about this profession, math is my life I use it everyday…

VO – The study says that compared to Gen Me, the baby boomers had lower expectations when it came to vacation time.

CLIP – Liz Drimmie – I’ve never had a vacation, I lived a privileged childhood so I thought I would get as much vacation time as my dad however that’s not how it turned out for me and to this day I’ve never had a vacation.

Stand up – Generation Me appears to take their laid-back lifestyle from school, into the workplace, and the reaction between their work ethic and that of older generations, tend to cause sparks.

Expert – the relationship between older and younger people in the workplace
(Giselle Kovary, Cofounder and managing partner of n-gen people performance, a consulting company in Toronto)

VO – The study examined over 16,000 students, and suggests that Gen Me is going to receive a rude awakening when trying to find a job where they can work less hours for more money.

Live Panel – We wanted to see what some graduating students here at Sheridan are expecting from the workforce. Here in studio is Rich, Krista, Graeme and Shannon.
