Workers aren't "quiet quitting." They're refusing to be exploited for their labor. And they're flexing their muscles for the first time in decades.
This is exactly what's been happening and it has been a joy to watch for this old-timer right here. When I see posts that shame people for not letting themselves fall into the trap of living to work instead of working to live, it makes my blood boil. Just because you wasted your life on your work doesn't mean that younger generations need to do the same. I say more power to them.
