We all know how hard it is to find good employees. We’ve all heard it: “People don’t want to work.”; “Don’t hire anyone younger than 30.”; “Everyone has an entitlement mentality.” Blah, blah, blah.
The situation is both kind of funny, and kind of sad. We all have to laugh about some of the employees we have seen through the years — some of which were no fault of our own. There are liars out there, even a few con men — those with exaggerated resumes and over-rated value-to-employer perceptions.
