5.So, what’s up with “quiet quitting”? The term, which gained traction after Insider published a story on “coasting culture” back in March, describes a phenomenon of workers refusing to go above and beyond for their companies, and choosing instead to focus on their work-life balance.
–Quiet quitting has been around, under different names, for generations. Gen Xers might have called it “slacking off” or “coasting,” while millennials might have said it was “having boundaries” — so it’s not just a “Gen Z thing.”
–Nor is it necessarily a bad thing, Ed Zitron writes. In his latest piece, Zitron argues that quiet quitting isn’t a nefarious rebellion against well-meaning employers. It’s workers doing exactly what they were paid to do — in the hours they’re told to do it.
