Millennial Habits That Are Totally Different From The Baby Boomer Generation

They Don’t Follow The 9-5 Workday


A generation with different priorities means one with a different workday. The 9-5 workday arose after WW2 and was based on a single-breadwinner family structure. With shifting industry, gender roles, and career possibilities, millennials have strayed away from the 9-5.

Freelancing and self-employment are increasing, and with that, workplace flexibility rather than workplace routine has taken priority over pay. Millennials are also looking to make more of an impact, and many do not view the traditional 9-5 cubicle job as fulfilling that desire. Adding to all of that, a globally connected world means you can work anywhere, anytime, and still pay your bills.
