14 Modern Work Perks Your Parents Never Had (And Probably Don’t Understand)

Our parents were simple folk. All they wanted from a job was a Monday-through-Friday, 9-to-5 schedule with maybe a side of health insurance and a puny pension to sustain them through their twilight years. We’re different.

In fact, we’d like to waste as little time at work as possible so we can see the world, eat all the things, and have the most amazing experiences life has to offer. These 14 modern work perks are becoming ever more common, and they’re ones our parents probably don’t understand (or maybe they do, but they’re pissed because they didn’t ask for them when they were employees).
