Feb 14, 2019
FinCap Friday

For the EdPuzzle version of this activity, click here.

In this FinCap Friday we share recent news about workers quitting their jobs in an unusual way, which many are comparing to "ghosting." Why would anyone choose to just walk out of work one day and not tell anyone that they won't be coming back? Well, the changes in the American jobs market have definitely contributed to this phenomenon but there are certainly many other factors involved. Is it even a big deal to "ghost" your job and move on to the next? Dive into this question while playing this week's engaging FinCap Friday:

For those who prefer not to use the Kahoot, we've recently added a no-tech version of FinCap Friday with the questions embedded in the presentation deck rather than online.


Check out all of our FinCap Fridays here. They are not date-dependent so any of the 23+ in our catalog can work throughout the year. 

About the Authors

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
