Never mind that we've had an 8% inflation rate in the past calendar year. Never mind that rent and home prices have essentially doubled since Covid hit.
If rate of pay WASN'T rising as fast as it was, I'd be worried about this profession. Fact is, IMO, we're still not getting paid enough. I didn't get an 8% raise last year, did you?
People are getting out because they can make the same or better money for doing LESS work. And they're posting about it. Call it grandstanding if you wish.
