A new study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that millennials work and sleep longer hours and are more likely to socialize in their free-time than previous generations.

Why it matters: The lifestyle tendencies of millennials are driving societal and cultural norms. "In fact, their economic circumstances and daily habits have often led them to be blamed for 'killing' everything, from casual restaurant chains, credit cards to the car industry," writes the Washington Post.
