Scroll down to watch and read about tonight’s (1/9/2022) episode of 60 Minutes on CBS.

The Big Quit

As employers try to fill millions of open positions – for everything from restaurant dishwasher to software engineer – workers who have jobs are leaving them. People are quitting jobs at an unprecedented rate, and some are simply taking a “time out” from work entirely. Many are calling it “The Great Resignation,” but few have been able to explain what’s behind it. Bill Whitaker gets answers from the chief economist at the huge jobs site LinkedIn, who says that we are amid a historic shift in people’s attitudes toward and expectations from their jobs. Rome Hartman is the producer.

One Small Step

Norah O’Donnell interviews Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps, an oral history project he started 18 years ago that has become the largest single collection of human voices ever recorded. Isay’s new project, “One Small Step,” is designed to get Americans from across the political spectrum to stop demonizing each other and start communicating, face to face, one conversation at a time. Keith Sharman is the producer.

The Kicker

Jon Wertheim reports on the NFL’s great secret hiding in plain sight: the kicker. Kickers score about one third of the points in the league, but only get a small fraction of the respect. Wertheim interviews Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker, who is on a trajectory to go down as perhaps the greatest NFL kicker there ever was. Wertheim speaks with other current and former kickers about how unique the position is and the immense pressure that comes with the job. Draggan Mihailovich is the producer.
