Why 'rage quitting' is all the rage

Walking out of a job in anger can seem extreme — but there are often powerful motivations for doing it.

In this story published Sept. 7, 2021, on BBC:

Particularly at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, people started spending a lot more time at home and that gave them a lot more downtime. When you’re in the office and it’s hectic, you don’t have as much space and time to think. It’s hard to zoom out and think about the next month, year, or five years of your life. It made people start to question: How can I live a life or have a career that’s in line with what I’m actually interested in?
