If you’ve quit your job in the last year or two, then you’re part of what’s become known as the Great Resignation.

It’s the term coined in 2021 to describe the record number of people in some advanced economies who have left their jobs since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

And this mass shake-up of the workforce is continuing, according to the latest data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Around 4 million Americans quit their jobs in October 2022, which is 2.6% of the workforce, it says. This is similar to recent months, after hitting a record 4.5 million workers in November 2021.

The hospitality and leisure industry had the highest number of people leaving their jobs among the major industries in October 2022, at 5.5%, the BLS says. The quit rate in the transportation, warehousing and utilities industry was 2.8%, and in the construction industry it rose to 2.4% from 2% a month earlier.
