I'm simply no longer interested in being insulted and lied to by a elitist, supremacist PoS posing as a newspaper.
"More workers saying ‘I quit’; Job-hopping rises as economy gains" by Christopher Leonard and Christopher S. Rugaber, Associated Press | June 10, 2010
One sign of better economic times is when more people start finding jobs. Another is when they feel confident enough to quit them.
More people quit their jobs in the past three months than were laid off — a sharp reversal after 15 straight months in which layoffs exceeded voluntary departures. The trend suggests the job market is finally thawing.
Some of the quitters are leaving for new jobs. Others have no firm offers. But their newfound confidence about landing work is itself evidence of more hiring and a strengthening economy.
Yeah, I thought I smelled something.
“There is a century’s worth of evidence that bears out this view that quits rise and layoffs fall as the job market improves,’’ said Steven Davis, an economist at the University of Chicago.
And a NEO-CON WAR ECONOMIST says it's all great!
Studies have shown that worker morale fell during the recession.
Translation; THEY QUIT because they were SICK of being EXPLOITED!
LOOK HOW the MSM DRESSED UP this TURD!
Productivity rose as companies squeezed more work out of employees.
And some people just say FUCK THIS!
I have BEEN THERE and DONE THAT!!!!
That points to a reason quits may keep rising: Overworked employees could jump at the chance to switch jobs as new opportunities arise.
Notice the OVERWORKED SLAVE doesn't garner much concern from the corporate press.
What new opportunities, shit-shoveling assholes?
About 25 percent of companies’ top performers said they plan to leave their job within a year, according to a survey published in the May edition of the Harvard Business Review. By contrast, in 2006, just 10 percent planned to leave within a year.
Yup, smelled it again.
Companies retained those workers during the recession but heaped more work on them, said Jean Martin, the study’s coauthor and executive director of the Corporate Executive Board’s Corporate Leadership Council in Washington. At the same time, employers cut back on awards and bonuses, she said....
Unless you WORKED FOR SOME WAR-PROFITEER, CORPORATION, or BANK!
Yeah, THAT AIN'T YOU, Amurkn!
They will NOT EVEN EXTEND your UNEMPLOYMENT!
Yet the long-term trend points to an improving job market.
I just can't get away from that smell, readers.
The economy has created a net 982,000 jobs this year after a recession that wiped out more than 8 million of them.

Yeah, the SMELL is coming from my NEWSPAPER, how did you guess?
The government said Tuesday....
Why would I care what a lying PoS said?
During the depths of the recession, workers were hesitant to quit — and not only because jobs were scarce. Even if they found a new job, some feared that accepting it would leave them vulnerable to a layoff.
Many clung to their jobs out of fear, said David Adams, vice president of training at Adecco, a national staffing agency. When Adecco tried to recruit workers to fill open positions, it frequently ran into the same obstacle: Few workers felt like betting on a new job that might soon disappear.
Not so much any more. Adecco is seeing more employed workers seeking interviews, rather than laid off workers searching for a lifeline.
Katie Charland just quit her job at a magazine in Phoenix to take a position with a nonprofit that supplies children’s educational programs. Charland, 27, says the position is a dream job. Still, it carries a cost: She’s abandoning seniority at her old job. But she thinks the economy is expanding enough that her company will be able to attract state and corporate funding....
“I do feel like the economy is getting better, and there’s more opportunity out there.’’
Does it FEEL that way to you, Americans?
This is REPORTING?
Such optimism was rare in 2008 and 2009, when the unemployment rate rose to a 26-year high of 10.1 percent. The number of people who quit fell 40 percent to 1.72 million in September 2009. That was the fewest since the government began tracking the data in 2000....And more people are now taking a leap that few dared just a few months ago: Quitting without a new job waiting. The improving economy has given them confidence.
Umm, NOT a GOOD IDEA!
Take it from ONE who appears to be BLACKBALLED because of my PAST RECORD of GLEEFULLY QUITTING a JOB!
So WHEN are YOU going to QUIT YOURS, PoS AmeriKan MSM??
