The Rotten Kid theorem?

According to Adecco, nearly a third of parents are helping their kids find work, and nearly one in ten are taking them to job interviews.

…Three percent of recent college grads say their parents have actually sat in with them during interviews, and one percent claim Mom or Dad wrote their thank you notes afterwards.

Nearly one in four say they would not take a job they were otherwise interested in if they could not make or receive personal phone calls at work. Twelve percent say they wouldn’t work at a place that wouldn’t let them check in on Twitter or Facebook. Finally, my favorite, five percent — one in 20 recent grads — say they wouldn’t take a job where they couldn’t shop online, and the same amount would say no to employment where they couldn’t check sports scores.

The story is here, and for the pointer I thank John Chilton.
