As the US job market recovers from the pandemic, some workers feel more capable of putting their well-being above their employers. Workplace leaders are beginning to predict a large-scale exodus in early 2021, and a survey found that a quarter of employees plan to resign after the pandemic.

Becker said he was assigned to start work at 4:30 a.m. instead of the day shift as mentioned above, and that he was not getting along with one of his managers. Recently, when a family member living on the East Coast became infected with Covid19, in July they were denied a vacation to care for him.

Becker’s period of unemployment may not last long in today’s job market. The day after his resignation, he had two new job interviews.
He said that finding a new job with dental and health benefits, which his former employer did not provide, is the number one priority. She feels it is better to spend more time finding the right person. “I think he was in a big hurry,” he said about accepting his last job. “Due to the new corona pneumonia, this is my first job in a year. I am very excited and want to start working. But this time, I will be slower.”
He added: “If I try to quit smoking, I can tell myself anything. The thing is, if [work] affects you so much, it’s not worth trying so hard and feeling uncomfortable, because you can have fun at home.”
