The Great Resignation: Why Millions Of Workers Are Quitting

Americans are leaving their jobs in droves. In August 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs. While some people have left the workforce entirely, job security and better pay are top concerns for others. Dubbed "The Great Resignation", the exodus of workers has created hiring challenges for companies and left millions of jobs unfilled. More than half of U.S. workers surveyed said they plan to look for a new job in the coming year, according to Bankrate's August jobseeker survey. Some 56% of respondents said adjustable working hours and remote work were a priority. Working women have faced an additional burden, juggling childcare duties, virtual schooling and their careers. So, what does the realignment of the workforce mean for employees and businesses? And what steps should you take before quitting your job?

  • The minimum wage jobs just aren't cutting it either, given various costs. Doesn't take a genius to realize that survival depends on making more.

  • If you ever wanted a chance to level up and get a better paying job......now's the time. Better try to get into a more senior position now because in 5 years....... many of these people are gonna come crawling back.... begging for their old jobs back.

  • Workers did not quit their jobs, they quit jobs that became zero-visibility jobs, combined with low wages, workers naturally sought out work that could sustain them longer than the day to day insecurity of brought on by the pandemic.

  • People want decent jobs. End of putting up with untrained supervisors. Poor pay. Poor benefits. Poor loyalty from buisness. Poor hiring practices. Physical abuse all day standing or walking. No advancement opportunities.

  • If my manager doesn't show up tomorrow I'll get twice as much done with half the aggravation, if I don't show up tomorrow? Well let's just say my manager will have quite a different day.

    • Same thing with me on my previous jobs. When i didnt have management over my shoulder, i actually got a lot of work done & with relative ease. I dont work well with folks keeping an eye on me constantly because they're basically saying they don't trust me.

  • The thing I don’t understand is that this has always been a problem so why people now complaining and where do they get the money to support themselves, am so poor I have no choice but to work these jobs I don’t get the luxury of quitting it’s hard to find a new better job atleast here in Florida it is

  • Keep in mind that there's other countries where the people there see videos of people in America and see how fat, lazy and "carefree" we are and hate Americans because they are suffering and starving. Now they're seeing us QUITTING OUR JOBS and we are crying and complaining about jobs they'd be lucky to even HAVE. This shows other countries how selfish Americans are. To those people who are mad about this comment, 300+ pound chocolate eating fat guy quits his job because he doesn't like it takes up eating on his couch watching TV vs 90 pound foreign person who is starving, his family's starving, he has no job because there are none, no tv, not even a house but a hut. See why they already see Americans this way? Now were ALL quitting work because it's becoming a " trend"??? Wtf America?!

  • People, are you tired of your job? Stop caring about money. Realize how much of it you just throw to waste for temporary amusement. Learn how to make money while saving time. Learn how to invest and diversify your capital. Unfortunately we live under a financial system that incentivizes fast consumption and no saving and debt. Try not to fall into that trap by being greedy. Remember there are more important things in life. As long as you can eat and have a roof over your head, money is not really an issue. People are more important. Doing something you like and not being stressed 9 hours a day for 20 years, is more important. Taking care of your health and body and not fall victim to Big Pharma. No need to have a capitalist rich white dude mentality of owning everything and being the best. just remember life is one and it can be way better than you imagine if you just use your time correctly

  • Every Profession is Different as with Every Employer. Being a New Employee you will have little weight with your New Employer and New Co-Workers. Trust and Loyalty is built with time and trials. The “Great Resignation” benefits those who keep their jobs and maintained their professional network. This cross-industry unspoken labor “union”. Only Hurts real unions. With prices of basic materials and goods rising… The “Great Resignation” to a “better” job is a facade. Welcome to global competition.

  • Many Americans were able to think during the pandemic. They figured out the job, especially in America, is the modern version of the slave plantations of the antebellum period. The employer is the beneficent slave master who is expected to take care of all of our needs. This new world order is Karma for a population that endorsed 400 years of slavery in America with no recompense

  • I think a lot of factors have to be evaluated in order to get a conclusion of why people does not want to go to work: -Anxiety and depression (huge obstacle right now) -Government helping financially -Student loans payments on hold -Fear of the virus (people are living of credit cards, we will see the impact of this in the next few years -People finding new ways to make money -Schools closing (one parent forced to stay home)

The form of micro aggression on women to conform to outgrown family values needs to be seen for what it is. Do we need the government to intervene like the women of Iceland did?! Where are the fathers/partners? Where are the American Family Values?

  • Not to worry because your slave masters of the universe are currently importing millions upon millions of slaves from every corner of the globe to replace us. Just one big corporate plantation filled with frightened, obedient slaves. The “Build Back Better” global business model and the “Great Reset” is well underway. The “Great Awakening” is also upon us as this thread would suggest. TH-vision is a part of the “Great Reset”.

  • What is logical and fare is Minimum wage for all states increased by 2$ Any full time employee gets vacation time Sick days and options for insurance! These term are for major corporations Walmart HEB Amazon ECT Restaurants can have private payouts Or could have a hourly choice. But no tips Hey it's thought and a solution. The only people I have a issue with are Loers Who having multiple kids! While working fastfood or a low paying job! That's on you!

  • For long time people have been treated as tools. Boss could use and abuse them and throw away when not needed anymore. COVID shown that those people who were till now treated like that can do something else (maybe start own small business?) and now lot of companies are "surprised" employee is no longer a tool to earn money. Surprisingly positive effect of pandemic.

Everything in America is driven by profit including healthcare...Most companies here could give two bumps about their employees. It's so egregious. Not like this in most European countries...

  • Pandemic situation force a lot of people, to pivot their life in how to provide to their families. With no help from Credit cards companies during COVID, with unemployed situation, no income in 6 month and start receive in on 2021. During no employments available, I did what a lot of people did. Learn, certified and start a new job. We are in a new fase of working, negotiation and offers. No more tradicional jobs. We are the work force, we move this economy.

  • Profits go up and up, cost of living goes up and up but our pay stays the same. Maybe if those greedy blood suckers at the top will start to share some profits with the people that earn them those profits then people will stop leaving in droves. Good for them. I hope the share holders share a piece of the pie otherwise there's no more pie for anyone.
