Why people are quitting is the most surprising finding of all: it’s because they’re not happy and simply do not like their jobs (65%).
Other driving forces: needing a change (63%), being bored/not challenged (55%) and disliking bosses (41%).
This begs the question, what are “quitters” living off of? Most mentioned their savings account (72%).
When you’re young, you don’t have many financial obligations; this could be why more Gen Yers are able to quit when they’re unhappy. Most people surveyed were between the ages of 25 and 49 (82%).
