Paying your dues is a topic that has been widely covered in music across a variety of genres. To have some fun with this subject, here's 15 songs on paying your dues....

Millennials in the blogosphere are suggesting that the days of paying your dues to get ahead in life may be over. I fully disagree. The same options to be entrepreneurial and start your own business rather than working for "the man" continue to exist...and everyone has the right to pursue that path. But that path is no cakewalk. There are dues to pay and lessons to learn whichever way you turn - you can do this on your own dime or while receiving a paycheck from "the man". It's not unique to Millennials that some people aren't suited to listen to authority and play a specific role in an organization. Those types of people should go do their own thing regardless of their generation. But those who want to work for a company and take the attitude that "if you don't give me what I want right now while I'm brand new to the workforce or I'll jump to another company" will likely find themselves facing a frustrating road of jumping from place to place while they search for their shortcut.
