NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Given the state of our economy and the constant plea for more jobs, this may seem like a silly headline. But what's silly is the idea that anyone would consider leaving potentially 50% of their lifetime's earnings on the table just for the sake of showing job loyalty.
Millennials are entering the workforce with the expectation that if they work hard, good results will come. They have dreams of making their mark and seizing that corner office by climb the corporate ladder.
But these days, companies are only as loyal to an employee as they have to be. Shareholders demand higher profits and corporate leaders have no choice but to deliver -- or else.
