A Gen-X lawyer told me he was working with a new client, who expressed impatience with younger workers who wanted to telecommute. The lawyer held his peace, but months later, when he got to know the client better, he confessed that, the day the client made that comment, he was telecommuting -- at home with a sick child. "Did that affect the advice I gave you?," he asked. The client acknowledged it hadn't; by that time, his attitudes had changed a lot.
Young men are changing the workplace, little by little.
