The story of an Ohio man is going viral on TikTok. He posted a recent life change on the social media network. A shift many platform users found drastic.
Seth Goshorn made a post saying he got a new job. In the clip, Seth says, "Leaving teaching after six years to go be a manager at Walmart. And [I] make more not using my degree.". The video shows him wearing one Walmart uniform and holding up another. (source)
Seth loves teaching. He has been a teacher for five and a half years. First, he was a reading tutor. Then as a second-grade teacher. Last year, he made $43,000 teaching in Ohio's Stark County. But he said he'll make $55,000 a year before bonuses at a Walmart in Massillon, Ohio. He will work as a stocking 2 coach. The role includes ensuring delivery trucks get unloaded. (source)
After his post went viral, he got interviewed by Good Morning America.
"I absolutely don't want this to be that I'm just trying to discourage anybody from becoming a teacher. That's not the case. I just want my teacher friends to be paid as they should be. Think about how good our teachers can be if they could focus on just teaching, and not have to work a second job on the weekends. They didn't choose to have to work a second job that comes along with it, and that's the thing that I would have loved to see go away."
