The working world has changed markedly in the last few years. With globalization, advances in technology and a shift toward a more “gig economy,” the marketplace has grown increasingly unstable. Many jobs are becoming less secure and more temporary, making it harder for workers to plan out their careers or feel like they’re part of a company that will last long enough to offer advancement opportunities. This is leading to a lot of people “quiet quitting”, which means doing the bare minimum on the job without actually resigning. Or, in franker and more accurate terms “acting their wage”. This trend follows what has been called “the Great Resignation”, when large numbers of people all over the world quit their jobs during or immediately after the pandemic. The reason is quite simple: the younger generations learned from the experience of their predecessors and have no intention of sacrificing their physical or mental well-being out of loyalty for companies that do not compensate or value their work adequately.
