40 Percent of US Workers Weighing up Quitting Their Jobs

Roughly 40 percent of workers in the United States are contemplating quitting their current jobs in the next three to six months, according to a new report from the global management consulting firm, McKinsey and Co.

The firm surveyed more than 13,000 people across the globe, including 6,294 Americans, between February and April, to find out what is driving people to stay, leave, or return to their jobs.

The survey found that workers might leave their current jobs in order to find better-paying work that is more satisfying, with the majority—three-quarters of employed respondents—stating that they believe they can find such jobs elsewhere.
