Seth Goshorn quits classes for higher pay at Walmart

A 28-year-old Ohio man is quitting his teaching job for higher pay as a Walmart executive, he announced in a video that has now gone viral.

Seth Goshorn has been a reading teacher and second grade teacher for six years, according to a video he posted to TikTok in early July. Goshorn says the main reason for his move is the pay, which is far more than his teaching job, although he doesn’t need a degree.

“Think about how good our teachers could be if they could just focus on teaching and not have to work a second job on the weekends,” Goshorn told Good Morning America Thursday.

“They didn’t choose to have a second job that came with it and I would have liked to see that go away,” he added.

“I absolutely don’t want me to just try to stop anyone from becoming a teacher,” he continued. “That’s not the case. I just want my teacher friends to be paid the way they should be.”

Goshorn’s original TikTok post was just six seconds long and showed him holding up his new Walmart manager’s vest. He added the caption, “Quit teaching after 6 years to become a manager at Walmart and earn more without using my degree.”

Goshorn will work as a Stocking 2 trainer at Walmart, helping ensure delivery trucks are unloaded. He says he will make $55,000 a year before bonuses for the new job, compared to $43,000 for his job as a teacher.
