WASHINGTON (AP) -- Quitting your job - all but unheard of during and after the Great Recession - is becoming more common again. That could mean pay raises are coming for more Americans.
I doubt they are basing this on the real employment numbers:
- There were, on average, just 1.8 unemployed people for every open job in January. That ratio is typical of a healthy economy and down from a record high of nearly 7 to 1 in July 2009. The drop in competition for each job could nudge employers to raise pay.
