Work ethic is a set of values based on the moral virtues of hard work and diligence. It is also a belief in moral benefit of work and its ability to enhance character. An example would be the Protestant work ethic or East Asian work ethic. A work ethic may include being reliable, having initiative or maintaining social skills.
Slacker culture challenges these values.
