I work with a lot of interns, and many of them are driven by a desire to make the government better. But they also aren’t usually tied down with a mortgage, family, etc., which means the cold, hard realities of adulthood haven’t kicked in yet. Finances can make people stick with a job they don’t like, because somebody needs to keep the lights on. It’s also hard to jump from a bad-fit job if you’re anchored to one particular geographic location; a problem many of the younger workers don’t have.
