Quitting Time

Huffington Post has published a brief article and slideshow on different reasons people have given for quitting their jobs.  These testimonies indicate again that employers can push workers too hard.  Even in a bad job market, people can be pushed too far.  Here are some of the reasons given for quitting:

  1. Too much stress – 50 to 60 hours per week.
  2. An employees completes a project and meets all goals only to have her employer yells at her for something that did not happen.
  3. A boss screams at a worker for a small mistake, so the worker takes her coat and walks out.
  4. “Constant belittlement by my boss for every imaginable thing.”

Even when unemployment is high, there is a time to say enough is enough.
