People today are still talking about the generation gap（代沟）. Some parents complain that their children do not show them proper respect, while children complain that their parents do not understand them at all.
What has gone wrong? Why has the generation gap appeared?
One important cause is that young people want to choose their own life style. In more traditional societies, when children grow up, they are expected to live in the same area as their parents, to many people that their parents like, and often to continue the family occupation.
Parents often expect their children to do better than they do, to find better jobs, to make more money, and to do all the things that they were unable to do. Often, however, the high wishes that parents place on their children are another cause of the generation gap.
Finally, the high speed of social changes deepens the gap. In a traditional culture, people are valued for their wisdom, but in our society today the knowledge of lifetime may be out of use overnight（隔夜）.

For some employers, the policy of lifelong employment is particularly important because it means that they can put money and effort into their staff（职员）training and make them loyal to the company. What they do is to select young people who have potential（潜能）and who can be trained. They then give the young people the kinds of skills that will make them suitable employees for the company. In other words, they adjust their training to their particular needs.
One recently employed graduate says that she is receiving a great deal of valuable training from the company. “This means that I will be a loyal employee,” she says, “And it also means that the company will want to keep me. I am an important investment for them. So the policy is a good one because it benefits both the employer and the employee.”
