Management Is Mad

If you’ve been reading my newsletter or reading my tweets or speaking to me in any meaningful way in the last week, I’ve been furious at the idea of “Quiet Quitting.” It’s a term that literally means “doing your job and being paid for it” that’s being mangled into some sort of weapon to claim that young people are lazy, and “only doing the bare minimum.” Young people are almost falling for it too, taking the bait and defending themselves from the concept by claiming it’s “a way of setting boundaries with the workplace” and “about work-life balance.”
