Rage Quitting, the act of leaving your job in anger is a fantasy of many who are sick of workplace issues like micromanagement, abusive seniors and exploitative working conditions.
The pandemic has increased the stressful conditions of employees, and given rise to the great resignation of 2021, where millions of people quit their jobs, some in piled-up rage.
The pandemic has made people open their eyes to the fact that their jobs can kill them, and how little the employers care for the safety of their lives. The ill-treatment had always existed, but the employees had their eyes closed before, apparently.
Even if we are going to a better place, leaving a current job that you have worked hard on can be upsetting. This is because:
Most employees working overtime remotely proved that their job can be done while sitting at home, without compromising on quality or any deliverables.
Now, the pandemic has(seemingly) subsided, and vaccination efforts are ongoing, companies are recalling people to their physical offices, full time. They now face an unheard of reality: Employee's needs, working styles and preferences have undergone drastic changes over the past year.
There’s a very clear and current phenomenon of people experiencing a waning interest in their work.
Particularly at the beginning of the pandemic, people started spending a lot more time at home and that gave them a lot more downtime. When you’re in the office and it’s hectic, you don’t have as much space and time to think. Being at home made people start to question: how can I live a life or have a career that’s in line with what I’m actually interested in?
