I'd like to believe that the common stereotypes about millennials—that they're lazy, egotistical and addicted to their phones—are completely false. But overachiever? That's something millennials can definitely add to their (overly stylized) resumes, especially because they—gasp!—like to work through their lunch break.
Yep, according to a new survey by Tork, maker of nearly half of the napkins used in the food service industry, millennials (aka the generation born between 1980 and 2000, including this story's author) feel more pressure not to take a lunch break than their peers.
TBH, that doesn't really jibe with the millennials I know who love pizza and avocados and posting about them on their Instagram (yes, yes, I am talking about myself), but that's neither here nor there.
This is a big deal, since millennial workers make up the largest generation currently in the U.S. workforce, and the survey revealed that a whopping 37 percent of millennial workers don't take a lunch break.
