Examiner.com is running a series of debates about generational issues in the workplace. Over the next four weeks, James Hamilton and Dudley B. Dawson, both workplace reporters, will go head-to-head on issues such as Generation Y's impact on the workplace, employee loyalty, flexible work schedules and pay. The readers decide the winner of each topic. I plan to give my two cents, and I'm anxious to see which writer comes out on top.
