CHICAGO — There is a new trend in the workplace, and we’ll warn you, it’s not a good one.

“Bore-out” is becoming more prevalent in the office as people tend to lack the energy that they once had about their jobs.

In fact, job trend scientists say it’s related to another trend in the workplace.

We talked all about it during the “9@9” on Friday’s WGN Morning News as the hosts discussed the issues that some people have about getting fired up for their jobs.

Along with that, we talked about a massive indoor pool in New York City, what celebrities looked like when they were 25, bug zappers, facts about the DuSable Bridge, disco balls, and more during the segment.

You can watch more of the “9@9” from the September 15 show in the video above.
