25 Bosses Who May Be The Case That “No One Wants To Work” Anymore

Published 6 months ago

When millions of people started leaving their jobs and it became difficult for companies to hire during the Great Resignation, the term “Nobody wants to work anymore” became quite popular. 

The ‘Antiwork‘ subreddit is where people come to share their most frustrated reactions from employees to an untenable situation at work. Showcasing unhinged and hypocritical bosses, this collection is a great wake-up call to management about where to place the blame when turnover is exceptionally high.

I (21M) work in a very small bakery in upstate NY. my boss (52F) is the owner of the bakery. I get paid under the table in cash. we work alone together a lot of the time, and so we have opened up to each other about a lot of things. when I opened up to her about my family’s financial situation, it was because I trusted her. I did not do so for pity, nor did i expect to have it used against me. lately she has been paying me late, and so occasionally I’ll ask if she’s done payroll bc I need to get food. yesterday she replied with this. I’m speechless.

“I had told her the day before that I was attempting to look but of course nobody wants to cover. She didn’t respond, so I sent a follow-up text and that was the reply I got. What is this joke about making employees find their own coverage while sick? Literally passed out on the floor being told I need to find coverage? Wtf”

Not me. On my way home and saw this truck in the ditch. I pulled over to see if he needed help but he was already gone.

But there was another guy in the parking lot talking to his boss on the phone. He had sent him the same picture telling his boss he didn’t feel safe. We talked a bit after he got off the phone. His boss was pissed that he asked to go back home.

Young kid probably 19-20. I told him minimum wage wasn’t worth it. Go home look for something better.

These supervisors, managers, companies don’t understand or don’t give a f**k. Ridiculous.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
