Millennials more likely to report being burned out at work

Millennial workers are more likely than older generations to report being burned out at work, according to a 2018 Gallup study. The gig economy, the temptations of social media and the high expectations millennials have of themselves contribute to this trend, behavioral finance experts say.

Well yeah, millenials don't get all the nice bells and whistles baby boomers expect as normal, like a pension, an employee health plan, paid time off, and of course pay raises. Nowadays employers will wring you out for as little money as possible. No unionization for millenials, even talking about it will get you fired.

They are more likely to report being burned out at work because they are pussies.

As a 25 year old Male who's done nothing but break his body doing 6 days a week with no work life balance because 60 hours is expected of me because in my employers eyes I am young, fit, and have no other possible commitments outside of the job they have so graciously allowed me to kill myself at, I feel pretty comfortable calling bullshit.

The older generations weren’t able to complain about being over worked, we’ve been too busy working.

I do utility location, during dig season it's a headache, I have jobs that get left behind for months, theres only so many dig sites i can reach in a day or week, depending how long each site takes can be brutal depending on certain variables. my company just isnt hiring enough and is putting a lot of the load on us, I got burned out real quick with the sun slapping me around. I can see why people have been getting burned out, especially wih society and culture of today, everything is racist, everything is sexist , transphobic, xenophobic, white men are the devil, straight people are predators, theres constant negative stories, constant lies, bullshits, companies are mangling workers. it's not really a surprise when in current year people will go to school for something leave and instantly need 5 yr experience for some places.

I'd agree and say that I do get burned out, but it's mainly due to a lot of anxiety.

I'm ashamed to be lumped in with these pussies. At least I'm an elder millenial

These comments are hillarious. I've seen several articles lately claiming millenials are burned out, they are saving more and spending less than other generations, will replace baby boomers as the largest group in America. This should be concerning for everyone, especially investors as this generation could likely cause contractions in the market. There are valid reasons for burnout which get brought up quite a bit on this app. It could pay to listen and adopt some changes.

He, I'm alright. I break my back (not literally) doing physical labor for only part time work, but then I tried moving on to better work. While I can agree that there is some measure of exploitation, working your ass off isn't a bad thing. Just dont kill yourself doing it, like the Japanese.
