WHYYY would anyone willingly quit their job in today's economy???

Unemployment is so high but people still quit their jobs cuz they're not happy or whatever. Why is this??? Are people not grateful for anything anymore???

  • Nope i dont think they are. Im a stay at home mom and i would love to work again but childcare would cost more then what i would be able to make only being able to work part time. So for me there is not point. Its better to just spend the time with my son.

  • Because they're sick. Because they aren't making enough to cover the cost of daycare. Because they have something better lined up. Because they work in an abusive environment that degrades their employees and treats them like slave labor.

  • Spoiled!! they feel entitled.
    my SIL have let go a 21-year old married girl because she did not want to learn her job and other people had to do it for her. Always wanted time off. Her husband had no Job. And she still kept pushing, I want, I want, so now she has no JOB.
    The funny thing is that she said "I'm taking this to the news media?" Is that funny! what is she going to say? I did not want to do my job and they fired me lol

     I've never heard anyone say "I'm going to quit my job and let the government take care of me". Sounds like a myth.
