Stereotypes abound about millennials: that they are lazy, entitled, work to live, are compulsive job-hoppers and have little time for experienced colleagues.

But workplace experts say they are hard workers who hardly punch out, reports The Boston Globe.

"If a friend texted me at the gym I would answer their text. Answering a work e-mail is just a natural extension of that," Jessica Molson, a 24-year-old integration manager at a Boston real estate developer and property management firm, told the Globe. "I don't think of it as working; it's just communicating."

Twenty-five percent of millennials – people born between 1980 and 1994 – didn't make use of their paid vacation days in 2016 according to a Bankrate survey, versus fewer than 1 in 10 Americans overall.

And millennials want to be seen as hard workers, or at least 39 percent of them do, says a survey of 5,600 workers completed by Project: Time Off, a group that promotes vacation time. Almost half (48 percent) think it's a good thing.

"Thirty-five percent of Millennials agree it is good to be seen as a work martyr by their colleagues, compared to 26 percent of Generation X, and 20 percent of Boomers," says the report.
