So much for young adults embracing work-life balance.
Millennials were supposed to be the generation that turned the tide of workaholism by demanding flexible schedules, family-friendly hours and paid time off so they could unplug from the workplace.
In reality, once they got established and started moving up the corporate ladder, it seems like millennials turned out to be less tolerant not only of their own vacation wishes, but of their colleagues', as well.
A new survey commissioned by Alamo Rent A Car found that "vacation shaming" is discouragingly common in today's workforce. The primary offenders aren't the hidebound Baby Boomers, but their kids, which means for workers of all ages who resent the implication that they have to check email from the beach or table their vacation days entirely, the anti-holiday sentiment is likely to get worse before it gets better.
