Young people aren't feeling the love at work, and it's not because they don't get along with their bosses—they just feel lonelier in the office than older people do.

Based on a 20-question survey of more than 10,400 people, researchers found that more than four-fifths of at-work Generation Z members—current 18- to 22-year-olds—and nearly 70% of working millennials (ranging in age from 23 to 37) are lonely.
