Woman Breaks Down Why Gen Z Is Refusing The 40 Hour Workweek

In an era where “YOLO” is more than just an acronym—it’s a way of life—there’s a rising rebellion against the age-old concept of the 40-hour workweek. Gen Z, the generation known for its innovation, activism, and penchant for questioning the status quo, is leading the charge in redefining what it means to live a fulfilling life.

Recently, one woman, Mik (@thatginger4567), broke down why Gen Z has decided to refuse the 40 hour work week.


“Gen Z isn’t lazy for not wanting to work 40 hours a week. Let me repeat that for the people in the back — Gen Z isn’t lazy for not wanting to work 40 hours a week.”

“Answer me this: why would I work 40 hours a week when I can make the same amount of money working for myself in ten hours?”
