Young professionals are often stereotyped for being demanding, impatient and entitled, but one thing they cannot be labeled is afraid. In fact, they’re pretty much fearless. And this fearlessness is turning the workplace on its head and driving a lot of long-overdue change.

How did we get here? Why must we legislate decency and manners?
