Quiet quitting refers to employees doing what their job expects of them, and not doing more than what they get paid to do.
- First, Gen Z and millennials are right. Workers are getting screwed. Productivity is through the roof — 61.8 percent since 1979 while hourly pay has risen only 17.5. Clearly, the rising tide is not lifting all boats. So quiet quitting, on its face, seems more than justified.
- Point two is a cautionary note: the great resignation is over. As the economy slows, managers will be looking to cut costs. If you are seen as someone who will only do the minimum, that could be what pushes you to the layoff list. In today’s economy, being undervalued is better than a meager severance and inadequate unemployment.
