Is the Great Resignation real?

We hear about this in the media all the time but is this phenomenon strictly blue collar? As in does it apply to jobs in tech or finance jobs? If all these people are leaving where are they going? I doubt they’re all just sitting at home without a job. Curious to know as maybe there’s now a larger supply of open roles.

This is highly dependent on the industry and location. With COVID and increase in remote jobs, companies are able to hire talent in more places and smaller companies are losing out to larger companies that can pay more since people who live in the Midwest say can now earn a California salary without having to live there. So I don’t think this is applicable to say a JP Morgan or a large tech company.
