It sounds like they're selfish and lazy, and willing to compromise their parents' fiscal well being without conscience. Sure, they want to compete for jobs with well qualified middle agers, but their strategy seems to be do nothing instead of consider entry level work.

This just shows who really runs the household and it ain't the parents...

That may be the case in some cases but from my experience out of college in 2006 and again in 2010 trying to find a job, there just weren't many Entry level jobs to apply for compared to ones that want someone with 3+ years of work experience. It was only because I knew someone that I got a chance. Many students are graduating with student debts and are unable to find very good jobs or any jobs at all. I have several friends in this category from various degrees. Mechanical Engineering seems to have been particularly hard hit. On the positive side, I have read that Biotechnical Engineering is experiencing 70% gains in hiring in the US.
