Millennials want a lot of things at work. According to a new survey, a majority of Generation Y workers (people in their 20s and early 30s) not only want their workplace to be fun, but they also want to make their own hours and eventually be their own boss. Above all, millennials want to be happy at work, so much so that 50 percent of Gen Y workers would rather be unemployed than work at a job they hate.
With an estimated 40 million millennials already in the work force, is it only a matter of time before they get their way?
The MTV "No Collar Workers" study says yes, but it also reveals that Gen Y workers are also misunderstood. The most notable misunderstanding for millennials comes regarding the confidence they have in their skills and knowledge. According to the poll, 92 percent of millennials feel their company is lucky to have them as an employee and 76 percent of Gen Y workers feel their boss can learn a lot from them.
