The Great Resignation is a phenomenon that describes record numbers of people leaving their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, often with no prospects lined up.

Associated with the trend is the anti-work movement (created in 2013) and the associated subreddit r/antiwork. Both experienced a boom in members and activity with the increase of job resignations over the course of the pandemic.
Sunday scaries again… My job pays shit and almost all my coworkers have COVID. Despite all these bills to pay, I have serious resignation ideation. I’m not alone though; everyone around me is quitting their jobs en masse due to The Great Resignation.

Fuck it! Tomorrow I’ll finally write "I Quit" on my nut sack in magic marker and show em to my boss. Give him the ole’ testicular resignation.

The Great Resignation is a phenomenon that describes record numbers of people leaving their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, often with no other job lined up and with no plans to resume working.

The trend is associated with the anti-work movement and a resurgence in support for labor-centric socioeconomics, and is heavily influenced by the stagnation of wages since the end of the Cold War. However, at least part of the trend has been a result of the popularity of remote work and a reluctance to resume working in office settings, which are largely seen as wasteful and/or uncomfortable in comparison with workers' private residences.
I hated working in that office, if my boss asks me to go back to working there I'll join the Great Resignation and put in my two-weeks notice the same day.
