Why These Texans Joined the Great Resignation
10 Mar 2022
Whether you teach kids, tend bar, make sales calls, develop apps, or do whatever else for a living, you may have spent some period of the last two years considering doing something new. The COVID-19 pandemic rewired the way many of us think about the relationship between our careers and the rest of our lives—sparking the “Great Resignation.”
That term, coined by Texas A&M academic Anthony Klotz, describes a historic level of quitting and job changing throughout the country since April 2020, a month when four million people quit—the most since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking resignations in 2000. Several record-breaking months followed, with the latest record set in November 2021 when 4.5 million, or 3 percent of the American workforce, left their jobs.
