Talk about nose to the grindstone! Vacation shaming – being made to feel a sense of shame or guilt from co-workers for taking a vacation – has become prevalent in the American workplace, especially among millennials, according to new research from Alamo Rent A Car. Findings from the 2016 Alamo Family Vacation Survey show more employed millennials (59 percent) reported feeling a sense of shame for taking or planning a vacation compared to those 35 or older (41 percent). Oddly enough, employed millennials aren’t just more likely to feel vacation-shamed – they’re significantly more likely than older generations to say they also shame their co-workers (42 percent vs. 24 percent). Plus, millennials who have ever shamed their co-workers were significantly more likely than older generations to say they’re at least somewhat serious (42 percent vs. 22 percent).
