John Catsimatidis, the known billionaire and CEO of Gristedes, told Daily Mail how he was planning to chill on the couch the entire summer, but his mother kicked him out. He utilized this opportunity and found himself working 70+ hours. 

He thinks that if you’re working 100 hours a week and it’s not working, you’d better work 120.

Besides recommending hard work, hiring smarter people than yourself, getting a good education, and focusing on building relationships, John Catsimatidis also said, “That’s one of the problems we are having in our country these days, the kids are busy playing TikTok.‘ to the Daily Mail. 

This statement has particularly enraged GenZ. The way GenZ think is different than older business owners.

A report by World Economic Forum (WEF) states that 27% of the workforce in OECD countries will be Gen Z. It is essential to note that they are focused on making money but with balanced elements of work-life balance. They are not likely to “tolerate” working in a company if it doesn’t align with their values.

The same report also mentions that GenZ would quit their job if it interfered with their work-life balance.
