If you actually dig into why they take less time off, it doesn’t reflect a workaholic attitude, it reflects an inability to communicate. 25% of millennials polled feel nervous asking for time off from their employer.
In the same poll, only 6% of baby boomers said the same. This is because millennials are not able to broach difficult subjects with their employer in a polite yet effective way. They have been pampered all their lives, winning trophies for coming in last place and being spoken to in such a delicate way so as not to offend, and are now not able to have difficult conversations, such as requesting holiday time at work.
