Japan takes the cake with a whopping 37 percent (that's nearly 2/5) of its total millennial workforce not seeing any sort of retirement in their lifetime.

The study also notes that over half of millennials globally plan to work past age 50, and even more alarming than that, 12 percent of the world's total working millennial population plan to work without ever retiring in their lifetimes.
