The cast, soundtrack, and cinematography are unparalleled, but what does this film have to do with Gen-Z?

Episode 1, We Are Quitting

By Leah Mallory

Living in a capitalist society, getting a 9-to-5 job seems like the best way to ensure that you never go broke. It’s stable, secure, and consistent, but is this type of schedule worthwhile? To many, the 9-to-5 is dull and unfulfilling — especially to Gen-Zers who are ambitious and eager to do work that creates change in the world. This episode talks about how Gen-Zers and millennials have been abandoning the rigid 9-to-5 work day. We Are Quitting because we are unsatisfied. This episode features an interview with college theater student Jaden Perez.
