“Lazy” millennials demanding work-life balance

A content creator says workers should clock fewer hours, work from home and make comfortable salaries. Thousands of people couldn’t agree more.

In late May, 26-year-old Gabrielle Judge sat in front of a camera in oversized glasses and pigtails to film a TikTok about what she called the “lazy girl job” – a low stress, fully remote job with little oversight and a good salary.

“A lazy girl job is basically something you can just quiet quit,” she says in the two-and-a-half minute video. “There’s lots of jobs out there where you could make, like, 60 to 80 K and not do that much work and be remote.” As an example, she zeroes in on non-technical roles, where she feels the hours fall within a 9-to-5 schedule, and believes the pay is enough to allow for some financial freedom.

Judge’s concept – and the now-viral video about it – have struck an ongoing chord with workers, especially women.
