Call them the "echo boom" generation, "generation y", the "MTV generation", just dont call them lazy. Theres a stigma about young people these days, that theyre unmotivated, lacking character, and have a sense of entitlement. In this Family First, meet an Evansville man whos building a positive reputation for his generation, one remodel job at a time. Any given day at this country home near Boonville, the fountain splashes as if to greet all who pass by. And at night, the frogs croak the sun to sleep. Its a peaceful, quiet place to live. But lately, theres a foreign sound in the air. The noisemaker is this guy, 27 year old Scott Smith. The family who lives here hired Scotts company to give their home a face lift. Scott belongs to a generation of young Americans with a bad reputation. Two years ago when his boss got sick, Scott did something that goes against all the stereotypes of people his age. He bought the business. As the market changed, Scott switched from new construction to remodeling. He gave the business a new name, Praxis. And he joined a business networking group. His workload tripled. Business is so good, this Gen Yer says he can barely keep up. Sure, there are long days, but this young entrepreneur says hes not afraid to work. And work he will. When Scotts finished here, theres more noise to make. Finishing bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens at homes across the tri-state. And there are more stereotypes to break, one new remodeling job at a time. A new poll shows some interesting numbers regarding Gen- Yers that might make you wonder how they got the "lazy" label in the first place. It shows that 69% of all 22 to 24 year olds in the U.S. have jobs. The same poll shows that only 65% of an older group - 55 to 59 year olds -have jobs. Sounds like young people arent as afraid to work as we thought. Also, this generation has logged more volunteer hours than any other generation before it.
