Half of Americans ‘Quiet Quitting,’ Poll Finds
Star News Staff (Laurel Duggan), The Star News Network
At least half the U.S. workforce is psychologically detached from work and putting in the
bare minimum at their jobs, a recent poll found. Employee engagement has dropped steeply since 2020 and is the lowest it’s been in nearly a decade, with only 32% of employees reporting being engaged at their jobs and 18% actively disengaged, the Gallup poll found. The findings align with the online trend of “quiet quitting,” or the bare minimum.
