There are various caveats here. The figure is still small, with fewer than a million Americans having chosen to leave their jobs, even as more than 9.4 million are still out of work. It’s even smaller when remembering that these are totals, not monthly changes, so someone who quit in March and is still out of work counts toward that number. While the total is the highest in nearly five years, the monthly change isn’t. Last September, more than 200,000 people were added to the total number of voluntarily unemployed Americans.
