THE head of the Union of Students of Ireland has rejected claims from one of the government’s new jobs tsars that some graduates today have an attitude problem when in the workplace.

Earlier this week, PayPal chief Louise Phelan told the Irish Independent that while most graduates were humble and hard working, others carried a “sense of entitlement” with them and seemed to imply that companies should be happy to have them “just because they have a degree”.

“They don’t seem to realise that people without degrees are almost in the minority at this stage,” she said.


What in blazes is wrong with you kids? Don’t you know that Paypal demands excellence?

Take Scott Thompson for example.

Class dismissed. ;p
