[The Glitch #06] Quiet Quitting: The Economic and Psychological Causes of Youth Tuning Out
February 23, 2023 — In the sixth episode of The Glitch, Asia Society Korea Senior Contributor David Tizzard and Digital Content Development Officer Michelle Sihyun Ju explore a phrase that has been everywhere recently: Quiet Quitting.
While mainstream media has focused a lot on this term, they begin by asking what it means and whether young people around the world are actually using it in real life. They then investigate the economic and psychological causes and how it has in turn possibly led to the arrival of a whole new phenomenon: Quiet Hiring.
