Snail Girl Jobs Are The Newest TikTok Trend Here’s What That Means

I think it's safe to say the pandemic changed a lot of things in the workplace culture. Working from home or at least a hybrid schedule became more prevalent. A lot of people also had a revelation of such that companies don't really care about their employees. Everyone is replaceable when it comes to workers. Pre 2020 there was such an emphasis on things like "Girl Boss" and climbing the corporate ladder. But now, in this new world, many people are taking a new approach. It's not so much about moving up in a career but making the most amount of money for the least amount of work. This is the basis behind the trend that is becoming the talk of TikTok- snail girl jobs. Some may call that laziness but I think a lot of people would call it boundaries and protecting your mental health. Our friends at Workamajig took a look at what's behind this trend and shared their research with us. So the first question is of course, what exactly is a snail girl job?
