4.3 million Americans quit their jobs in January, according to a new report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Wednesday.
This new report comes on the heels of the Biden Regime claiming 678,000 jobs were added in February, bringing the unemployment rate to 3.8%.
The Washington Post reported:
Some 4.3 million Americans quit or changed jobs in January, edging down a bit compared to December but still in record-high territory in yet another sign that workers continue to have the upper hand in a tight labor market.
Employers hired 6.5 million people in January, while reporting 11.3 million job openings that month, as the omicron variant picked up speed in many parts of the country, according to a new report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The number of people who quit their jobs decreased slightly, by 151,000, in January. Even so, quits in the finance and insurance sector rose by 30,000, an indication that white-collar workers are looking for new opportunities as many offices move ahead with reopening plans.
A record 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs in November according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The quits increased in the hospitality industry, transportation and healthcare thanks to Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.
