When it comes to balancing work life, equal pay of wages, and alignment of values, the “Gen-zers” is one of the demographic that is willing to put in the resignation letter, if these needs aren’t met. This demographic has reported feeling burnt out from the high stakes and compassion fatigue some of them encounter at work.
Clarissa Holleman, a 24-year-old teacher who just started teaching during the corona pandemic had confessed to feeling weak and ill-encouraged to aid the school children she was looking after. Miss Holleman also reported feeling extremely anxious and tired from the job, adding that she was dealing with monetary issues on top of all her problems. This contributed to making her feel that the job she was at was not worth it.
The young lady quit the job earlier this year after gaining skills via Linkedin’s free courses and currently works as a tech employer for a gen X company. For many years, the cultural law in several countries in the West had been to work hard for their bosses, and get rewarded. If the job involves scaling the rungs of the ladder in the corporate world, the pay would be a huge sum. Though different in their influence, the two paths share the same ideology. As a consequence, being employed has become a sort of identity even; something employees previously felt fortunate to have.
However, Gen Zers have been labeled entitled or anti-capitalist. But, Gen-Zers want everything and are ready to be hardworking for the correct boss. But an established factor with this demographic is that they would leave if their pay wasn’t substantial.
