People voluntarily leaving jobs at
highest rate since 2009 downturn

Journal Sentinel [Milwaukee], by John Schmid

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/5/2014 5:44:18 PM

In the darkest days of the last recession, few among those who had jobs were able, willing or bold enough to quit them. That is changing, however, according to a statistic called the national "quit rate," which some might call the "Take this job and shove it" index. The figure shows that the percentage of Americans who are jumping ship voluntarily is hovering at its highest levels in the four-year recovery. Many see the shift as a sign of optimism for an economy that has sputtered its way through an on-again, off-again rebound from the demoralizing downturn of 2008-´09. "The quit rate is

Broken Link.

There may very well be people that have found better employment. There are graduates each year leaving a burger joint to work at an entry level job in their chosen career. People fed up with certain employer´s rolling back pay and benefits just to see what the market will take. You just never know.

High levels of voluntary quits is typically a sign of strong economic activity. People are quitting to take a better paying job.

"typically" doesn´t fit here, shamus....in my humble opinion. Some sectors are up...oil, health care, and may pay decently, but most don´t pay well.

I suspect the quit came because govt. disability or some such handout makes it easier than beating your head against the wall for peanuts.

One of my friends has a small business. They can´t keep help because- it´s hard work, they never show up after being hired or don´t show up on a regular basis, some have parole officers that show up on day two, some have a ton of paperwork for child support and benefits, garnishments, or they lied about their experience and can´t do the work. By the time they are established on paper, they move on and the cycle starts again.

More pre-election hype about a "recovering" economy.

Wanna know how the economy is doing? Check out the vacancy rate at local strip malls. Or the rental rates per sqft. The rest is BS.

I volunteered for a ´resource action´.

The company was more concerned about Wall Street rather than the corporation, its customers, its products and services, and its employees. Can you say looters?

I saw it starting more than 20 years ago. My employer reduced headcount in the US by over 200K while increasing outsourcing by a similar number.

Yearly resource actions. Sometimes more than one. Under investment in growing products. A sales force that had no technical knowledge. A sever loss of technical skills. Recognition based more on connections rather than contribution. Plant closings.

The writing was on the wall, and I started planning accordingly a long time ago. My employer was not a unique situation.

This has nothing to do with the economy.

I saved my money and finally reached a position where I could ´retire´ from my employer. I will find another employer, but it will be on my terms.

FERGUSON, Mo. — Protests in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown continued Sunday as police for the second night imposed a curfew on this St. Louis suburb. Meanwhile, a preliminary autopsy found that Brown was shot at least six times, but the circumstances of his death remained unclear. Late Sunday, The New York Times reported that a private autopsy requested by Brown´s family found that he was shot at least six times, including four times in the right arm and twice in the head. All of the shots, the Times reported, were fired from Brown´s front — a finding that

This is an update to the original outline we shared several days ago when we discovered the hidden audio of an eye witness to the Mike Brown and Darren Wilson shooting incident.

Which leads to the natural question: “why wasn’t he arrested” ?MISSOURI - Dorian Johnson, the friend of Michael Brown who claims he witnessed the police shooting death of the 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri, has an outstanding arrest warrant for theft, according to authorities. Barbara (censored for bad word filter), court clerk for the Municipal Court of Jefferson City, confirmed to WND there is a warrant for Johnson’s arrest for a 2011 incident. Johnson was arrested June 24, 2011, and a trial was set for July 31, 2013, but he did not appear in court, authorities said.

I’m going to call this the “J J Video” because a sharp Treeper catches the background conversation within a video of the Mike Brown shooting scene. (Snip) The video was taken in the aftermath of the shooting, and judging from the comments attributed to the uploader -although he was not a direct witness- he felt the video was affirmational toward Mike Brown and the anti-police narrative. However, probably unknown -or at least unnoticed- in the background of the video you can hear an audio conversation of a male eye witness to the shooting itself describing what he saw to another

Second, the email was dated October 5, 2013, five days into the disastrous launch of HealthCare.gov. Third, federal law requires federal officials to retain copies of –not delete– email exchanges.

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day.

Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.

Barack Obama’s presidency isn’t just shrinking, it’s losing support among its most critical point — its base. Less than two years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic president since FDR to win re-election with a popular-vote majority. Since then, his support has dropped dramatically — not just overall, but among important constituent groups. Comparing 2012 exit poll results with an Aug. 8 McClatchy-Marist nationwide poll shows how far Mr. Obama has fallen with various segments of the population. In 2012, Mr. Obama won among women 55 percent to 44 percent. Today, his approval rating among women is 41 percent, with
