4.3 Million Americans Quit Their Jobs – The Red Alert News

4.3 Million Americans Quit Their Jobs

(TheRedAlertNews.com) – When it comes to the American economy and American jobs, records continue to be set under the “leadership” of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris – not to mention House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer – all Democrats. Unfortunately, for Americans, the records being set are not what any objective observer would describe as good or beneficial for the immediate economic health and future of the United States.

The latest jaw-dropping record just reported moments ago is that 4.3 million American workers quit their jobs in August – the latest month for which the statistics are complete. That is a staggering number by any standard. It is the highest number in a single month going all the way back to December of 2000. And, as anyone who has been to a restaurant or retail shop in recent months would guess, the largest single category of those who quit had been employed in the foodservice and retail industries.

Here is more of what is contained in the just-released report:

  • Job openings fell 
  • Hiring by employers fell
  • Unfilled jobs hit 10.44 million
  • Job postings as a percentage of the workforce stand at 6.6%
  • 892,000 workers in the foodservice and accommodation industries quit
  • 721,000 retail workers quit
  • 534,000 in health care quit

But, it’s a safe bet that most Americans don’t need government statistics to tell them what they have been observing in their communities. Help wanted signs are everywhere across the United States – big and small towns, urban and rural. 

As most employers can attest, saying that there’s an employment crisis in America is to understate just how bad it truly is.
