The Great Resignation — the widespread movement by American workers to quit their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic — continues to handicap the United States’ economic recovery. A record number of Americans quit their jobs in September, causing job openings to remain at near all-time highs.
A record-high 4.4 million U.S. workers quit their jobs in September, according to the Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover or JOLTS. This follows the previous high of 4.3 million in August. The “quits rate,” or the percent of workers who left their jobs, rose to 3% — also a record.

ZipRecruiter chief economist Julia Pollak told CNBC that turnover is a major factor for businesses, “Employers are basically having to replace their entire staff in just a couple of months. It’s really quite dramatic.”
Pollak adds that the historic turnover may present tremendous opportunities, “It’s […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today.

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
