My dad tried talking to me recently about how the gig economy is a positive. That millennials actually prefer a transitive lifestyle with work style/hours dictated on our terms. Couldn't convince him that we would also like job security, healthcare, and regular paychecks let alone retirement benefits, stock options, and flexwork at a 9-5. Like yeah, Pop, you want me driving for Uber and freelance web development while raising your grandkids? Cool.
Boomers are dicks, even the ones who should know better.
