Used as a humorous way of expressing farewell, used especially when a business closes, someone leaves a position, something is retired from the market, etc. The phrase comes from the title of the 1984 novel by Douglas Adams, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series.

r/antiwork uses the slogan "Unemployment for all, not just the rich!" Members of the subreddit are known as "idlers" in reference to the Protestant work ethic. Posts commonly criticize hustle culture[4] and share stories of employees' negative experiences at their jobs,[5] including unfair treatment and poor working conditions[6] as well as poor pay. The most common issues raised by members of the subreddit include "stagnation of wages, overworking, being expected to be on call on and off the clock."
