Why are so many Americans quitting their jobs?

I read this article recently that claimed 4 MILLION people quit their jobs in April - double the number of people who quit one year earlier.

Why do you think so many people are quitting their jobs? Share your thoughts below!

Biden pays people more to stay home. I am retired and barely making it.

Biden needs to be impeached! Quickly! He and the Democrats are ruining our country and robbing us citizens who paid into Social Security. It doesn’t belong to people who have not and not willing to pay into it!

I didn't quit. I was fired after working the job for 17 years. And quite frankly it was the best thing. My work place was toxic and management didn't manage, only blamed. Has things gotten better in the workplaces ? I think not. So people quit . Those people blaming President Biden sound like my former bosses Blame, blame , blame .......... TOXIC

My boss told me to take off my mask 4 months before the pandemic reached America,I told him to look around,Look at all these Asians wearing mask.I asked him do he watch worldly news he replied no & I said you need to..He took off 7-8 months straight from that day.months after he told me to take it off it became mandatory that we wear one..When he came back to work I asked for an leave of absence he denied me 3 times,So I resigned..I worked for MTA Metro North As An Custodian..My Job became essential during the pandemic,Imagine cleaning poop and vomit up during an outbreak and It is your duty to perform these task..My name is Devon R. Johnson & you never know someone’s situation and for all of you small minded people thinking it’s because of unemployment ,change your paradigms..I’ve been out of work from nov 28 2020 and have been without money since..It’s an matter of life or death.People have kids to attend to and don’t want to bring disease back home to their families..You all feel privileged and you are the problem,Alongside of our Government and it’s people like you that hate on others and want to see others suffer..Disgusting..Your words reveals your heart & by your words I can tell it’s full of hate..There is an place for those that hate..Be mindful of your words..Rahtha9God

It is not because the government giving out money it is because people are tired of being treated badly and not getting paid the way they deserve so I don't blame them for staying home now it is our turn to pick what we want we all need to go on strike to get better pay and treated better not yelled at and told you pick up things that are too heavy or we get fired now it is our turn like I said we all need to strike while the fire is hot 🔥
