The Observers, we caught up with a Syrian migrant who filmed himself crossing the Maritsa river from Turkey to Greece, in order to reach the European Union. He recounts his various trials crossing the river and being confronted by Greek border guards. Then, we go to the United States, where an unprecedented number of people are quitting their jobs, after being fed up with corporate culture and work-life balance during the Covid-19 pandemic. They've shared their #QuitMyJob stories on TikTok.
