You are just repeating the oldest of all memes about the next generation. To the older generation, the next generation is always lazy, overconfident, whiney and doesn't know how to work. So your "evidence" is worth exactly nil, as the generation before you made the same experience with you and thought you would be lazy, overconfident, whiney and you didn't know how to work. And you just proved them right by being whiney about the next generation, overconfident in believing to be better than them and too lazy to do the hard work to really get them into the daily process of working.
What we have, despite you feeling entitled and being the special snowflake and superior to everyone coming after you (typical for people of the current generation), is for the first time, the next generation (which will also think that the generation after her will be lazy, whiney, overconfident and not knowing what hard work is) will be earning less than you.
