These Millennials need to hear the cold hard truth, not more Proglodyte psychobabble about how special they are and how they can do anything they desire and wealth and recognition and happiness will rain down upon them as if by magic and it will be unicorns and rainbows forever and ever!

"Look, I understand the importance of persistence, and the value of encouragement, but who tells a stranger to never give up on their dreams, without even knowing what it is they’re dreaming?"

"If we’re talking about your hobby, by all means, let your passion lead you, But when it comes to making a living it’s easy to forget the dirty truth: Just because you’re passionate about something doesn’t mean you won’t suck at it. And just because you’ve earned a degree in your chosen field, it doesn’t mean you’re going to find your ‘dream job.’

Their imaginary existence just might keep you from exploring careers that offer a legitimate chance to perform meaningful work and develop a genuine passion for the job you already have. Because here’s another Dirty Truth: your happiness on the job has very little to do with the work itself."

Rowe noted that while they are many unemployed millennials, there are also employers who are struggling to fill 5.8 million jobs “that nobody’s trained to do.” (RELATED: Mike Rowe Criticizes Bernie Sanders For ‘Knucklehead’ Policies)

“Your happiness on the job has very little to do with the work itself,” he said. “Never follow your passion, but always bring it with you.”

Calling All Snowflakes...this just in, you can't get paid big bucks for being a Transgender Studies Major!

It's not just in...it's always been true.

Or Education.

No wait a minute, we need consolidation...

Suppose we roll State into Defense, and AG and Interior can divvy up the rest between them and we can cut a lot of unelected bureaucratic asses?!

Then we can give Mike the Interior post.   ::thumbsup::
