A new report shows that more and more people are quitting their jobs. According to research done by McKinsey & Company, 40% of U.S. workers are considering quitting in the next three to six months. The group says people are moving from traditional to non-traditional roles, retiring early, or starting their own businesses. Some are also taking a timeout to focus on their personal lives.
At the end of May, there were more than 11 million open jobs compared to 9 million open jobs in April 2021. The voluntary quit rate is currently at 25%. That’s higher than the pre-pandemic levels. This year alone, 4 million people have left their jobs.
