What is the Big Quit?

Do you really know?

What is the Big Quit? Thanks for asking!

Remember our episode on #QuitMyJob, about thousands of Americans publicly quitting their jobs on TikTok? Since then, the phenomenon has continued gaining momentum in the United States under a new name: the Great Resignation, or the Big Quit.

According to a report published by the US Department of Labour on October 13, 2021, this August alone saw 4.3 million resignations nationwide. Count in the rest of summer and spring, and the figure jumps to a staggering 20 million. In the spirit of similar past initiatives, The Big Quit is yet another movement that offers resistance to unfair employers and unsafe working conditions.

What got this trend started then? Has the movement spread to other countries? Does the movement prompt companies to become more attractive by raising wages, for example? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
