Over 80 per cent of India’s millennials — those born between 1980-2000 — say they work harder than their bosses, as their work hours stretch longer than their managers’, a survey revealed on Wednesday.

According to the survey conducted by Talentedge, a Delhi-based Ed-Tech firm, more than than 12 hours are spent at work by 16 per cent of the millennials aged 21-24, whereas only two per cent of their superiors are spending the same time at work.
