Young women are working longer hours and earning more than ever while still carrying more of the burden at home, according to CNN.

According to the report, while millennial households report wanting to split household duties, those promises often collapse.

On average, 19 percent of men reported doing housework compared to 49 percent of women.

Meanwhile in 2017, 78 percent of young adult women worked at least 50 weeks per year, increasing from just 72 percent of employed young women in 2000.

Also increasing is pay. Full-time female employees between 22 to 37 had median earnings of $39,000, up from $37,100 in 2000.
