Join the crowd. At many big companies here in KC, young kids with "moxy" are hired for way more than employees that have a decade of experience. The H.R. hiring managers think new young blood will set the company on new sales records. But the kids complain, get bored, wont work hard and leave for another company that offers beer and pool tables at work. The the established workers have a moral loss, knowing they were not valued and production goes down. Seen it many times. Young = needs years of training and unproductivity.
