Gen Z has a new solution for workplace burnout: "quiet quitting.”
The idea is simple: Forget going above and beyond your job description and pay grade. The trend, which took off on TikTok, sounds ideal. Log off at 5 p.m.? Check. Spend more time with family instead of volunteering for extra tasks? Count me in.
But the people who tend to experience the highest levels of burnout — women and people of color — probably can’t afford to "quiet quit.”
