America’s Workers Are Leaving Jobs in Record Numbers
Oct 15, 2021 1 min, 55 secs
workers left their jobs nearly 20 million times between April and August this year, according to the latest federal data, a number more than 60% higher than the resignations handed in during the same period last year, and 12% above the spring and summer of 2019 when the job market was the hottest it had been in almost 50 years.

The data doesn’t count retirements but includes people who have quit jobs for any number of reasons, such as taking a job elsewhere, going back to school, leaving to care of a family member or simply taking a break. The data also includes people who may have quit multiple times, for instance leaving a job on a college campus in May and then quitting a summer job in August.

labor force gained about 2 million employed people between April and August, though that level is still almost 3% lower than it was pre-pandemic.

At the same time, many workers have a rare edge: Jobs are plentiful, wages are rising and companies are competing for talent, he said.

All those things are continuing to make people be reflective of their life and career and their jobs.

People left healthcare, retail and food services at especially high rates at the end of the summer.

Workers also left jobs at an accelerating pace across the Midwest and South.

The rate of more tenured employees who quit between January and August of this year also increased compared with the same period last year, according to research from workforce analytics company Visier Inc., which studied employee activity for hundreds of thousands of workers across 50 large U.S.

Resignations among those firms were up between 53% and 57% over the same period last year for workers with every length of tenure, up to 15 years, the research showed.

Workers between 40 and 50 years old, who are typically less likely to quit their jobs than younger employees, also quit in higher numbers this year, increasing their resignation rates by over 38%, the study found.
