Actually, these people might not be as stupid as you think. They all mention being unhappy in their jobs and they're probably correct in that they are being made to work hard for little pay. Most likely they work for large corporations who are only interested in profit and view their employees as a necessary evil and expense.

If the 'Great Resignation" shakes up a few of these corporations and results in more humane working conditions and a fair wage, then it only helps our cause. More power to the people.

I agree with you, and Gen Z is more based than some people give them credit for. My son is Gen Z, and him and his friends are very based. It's the tail end of the millennials who are a major issue.

A question to ask of this demographic is, how many of them quit their jobs due to the vaxx mandates? Also, who wants to spend a vast portion of their day muzzled and barely breathing? Two years of this and I'd be willing to chuck it all and quit, too.

Agreed, and I bet even the hardcore lefties deep down are sick of wearing masks. They truly have superman complex and think they are saving the world. So damn smug.

ironically, the "toxic work environments" are the result of corporations trying to cater to the peculiarities and demands of the millennial generation.

As a Zoomer, this. Luckily I don’t work for a corporation, but a lot of the zoomers I know that do hate it.

That's because the Gen Zers figure Uncle Poopy Pants will pay them to sit on their asses forever.

"Experts have chalked up the trend, also known as the Great Resignation, to pandemic-related factors, including fear of COVID contamination, burnout and an unwillingness to return to the office as many former desk jockeys haven’t seen their workplace since March 2020. Some business owners even blamed the pandemic stimulus checks over the summer for disincentivizing people from seeking and keeping employment."

They weren't sitting on their asses, though.

You have to have a job in order to quit it.

Yup, and you can’t collect if you quit.

Zoomers want to work, we just don’t see much benefit in working anymore. We can’t afford houses, we can’t afford nice cars, nice vacations, etc. I’ve been working my ass off all year, and a 3 day vacation basically bankrupted me. There’s no time for fun when life is steamrolling you, and now inflation is greasing the ground you’re running on.

It all just seems so fake, so pointless. It’s no wonder people are just giving up. Watching my parents take 0 days off for decades and still not have enough to retire in their late 50s… it’s just rough.

Gen Z is more based than you give credit for. It's the second half of the millennial generation that are the issue, if you will.

Did you read the story? Most of them don't sound like workaholics or based.

Not a peep about people leaving their jobs due to vaccine mandates. I'd like to see those numbers! They are totally hiding this information. Journalism is DEAD.

Just an excuse for Biden’s poor job numbers

I’m glad inflation isn’t killing you financially. Good luck supporting yourself off $15/h anywhere in the US nowadays. Those days are far gone.

It was just last year they were screaming for a $15 an hour minimum wage thinking they would all be rich, but as we see, minimum will never be livable no matter how high it is.

Say what you will, but they were working. You have to give them that much.

RainerWinkler 1 point ago +2 / -1

I think this is good.

It opens job opportunities for people that really want to work and it lets those go that are not happy with their jobs. So, go ahead, you want to be hungry but happy? Ok, I prefer my family to be financially safe and accept that someone has to sacrifice a little comfort and happiness for the wellbeing of my children.
