A student who previously revealed he would live with his parents until he’s 50 has now decided working full-time doesn’t align’ with his beliefs.
Anthony Voulgaris, a university student from Melbourne, shared his revelation about full-time work to social media on Friday.
‘I would just like to come on here and formally announce that I don’t think full-time work is for me, yeah, personally not for me,’ he said.
‘I would like to sit here and provide reasons, but there’s not many.
‘I just don’t think personally that it aligns with my beliefs, you know my belief system.
‘You can’t force someone to believe what you believe, so yeah.’

Millennials were quick to sympathise with Mr Voulgaris, with many agreeing they weren’t ‘made’ for full-time work.
‘Personally, I’m on your level. I think I was born to be a stay-at-home mum/housewife, so yeah, nah, no work for me,’ one commented.
‘I do three days, and that’s more than enough for me. I will never go back to full time!’ another said.
‘I just went from 8-hour days to 6, and what a difference! It feels like I have so much extra free time in a day to accomplish things!’ a second wrote.
However, others said they had no choice but to work full-time.
‘I feel the same, but sadly I need to eat, pay bills, and have a roof over my head, and my children cared for means I must make full-time work for me,’ one said.
‘I say this to my partner daily! Then remember we have a mortgage,’ one said.
A third shared: ‘Well, it ain’t for me either and yet here I am working 9 to 5.’
It comes after baby boomers claimed younger generations are just ‘weak babies’ who have no clue about the real world and often produce ‘substandard’ work.
‘Youngsters are leaving the workplace because they’d rather sit home on Centrelink payments than doing an actual job,’ Dianne, 66, commented as furious discussion broke out about millennial’s work ethic online.
Another said: ‘So are these whiny, weak babies that quit their jobs moving back in with mummy and daddy? How are they supporting themselves?’
A third wrote: ‘One day this generation will be in charge. We’re all doomed.’
A fourth said: ‘Millennials are selfish, self-centred, don’t understand teamwork or responsibility to coworkers or company,’ one person said. ‘The trouble is that they are also so arrogant and entitled that they won’t recognise or admit to any of these traits.’
Another wrote: ‘Most youngsters wouldn’t actually know what hard work/pressure is.’
‘We have reared a generation of selfish wimps,’ Janet said.

Mr Voulgaris caused a stir earlier this year when he announced he intended to live with his parents until he was in his 50s.
He questioned why any young person would choose to leave home.
‘I’m staying here as long as I can,’ Mr Voulgaris said.
‘I get free food, I get my washing done for me – that’s lucky, a lot of people don’t get that – I’m not moving out ever.
‘If I can stay here until I’m 50, I will. I’m slaving off of these people and I’ll continue to do so, happily.’
His comments came as young people aged from 18 to 30 are choosing to remain or return to their family home amid Australia’s rental and property crisis.
Record-low vacancy rates, the rising cost of living and repeated interest rate rises have created a perfect storm for young Aussies trying to get on the property ladder.
