That isn't "quitting". That's the opposite of quitting. That's literally doing your job.
Even a quarter-century ago it was generally considered out of the ordinary to take work home or to stay late at the office, and people who went excessively beyond their job responsibilities were seen as brown-nosers.
Now management is trying to frame doing your job as "quitting"? What sort of happy horseshit is this?
@noelle It's the kind of horseshit used to make employees feel guilty about doing extra work without compensation. They gave it the "quiet quitting" name to make "setting boundaries" and "asking for proper compensation" sound like bad things.
@noelle the same horseshit that led the UK Times to write about how in the wake of energy prices near doubling in the past six months actually you can save money on electricity by going back to the office instead of making tea at home, plebs
@noelle I remember when trade unions used to call it "working to rule". Maybe a bit of "quiet quitting" will earn people some overtime rates instead of "time off in lieu". 🤔
Have you come across The Gervais Principle by Venkat Rao?
This is the normal behaviour of the successful people on the bottom of the hierarchy, the Checked-Out Losers, while the work-extra-hard-for-the-shiny-brass-ring is the behaviour of the Clueless..
Just Ellie (and perhaps some of her toys).
