Americans are known for their hard work and not taking all their vacation time, but a new U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report says that Americans are quitting their jobs at the same rate as pre 9/11 times.
In May 2017, more than 3 Million people quit their jobs.
That's a lot of quitting, especially since there were more layoffs than people who quit during the great recession in 2008.
That means people are either looking for better options with more perks or they are not as worried about unemployment.
According to Fatherly, HR pros are taking longer to fill vacancies that would have been snagged immediately during the recession.
But there is no indication that wages are going up, which means benefits packages, including paid parental leave, are a way companies are luring in new perspectives.
