Imagine a light-hearted TikTok video saying, “We openly discriminate against older people!”
It would probably go viral, but not in a positive fashion. But flip that and say, “POV: you start a new company, and you only hire Gen Z,” and you get praise for it. This is what happened when Fox and Robin Founder Tommy Flaim released this now-viral TikTok where he begins with “POV: you start a new company and only hire Gen Z.”
Buzzfeed loved it, and wrote about it with this headline, “This Millennial Boss Shared What It’s Like To Have Only Gen Z Employees, And Honestly, It Sounds Awesome.”
Yahoo Sports chimes in with, “Employers reveal Gen Z email sign-offs: ‘Hasta la pasta'” and focuses on why emails aren’t so formal for the younger crowd.
Do you know what they didn’t focus on? That this is a horrible example of age discrimination.
