Mike Rowe on Why Some Workers Are ‘Quietly Quitting’

During a recent radio interview, reality TV actor Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” fame discussed the change in work ethic as more workers say they are “quietly quitting” their jobs — that is, disengaging and doing the bare minimum.

Rowe said too many individuals have associated work with drudgery — instead of purpose — and made work “the proximate cause of our collective unhappiness.” He urges workers to reflect if they have made work the enemy. 8/24/2022
