We live in a time that some economists call the Big resignation. Since COVID, a record number of Americans have quit their jobs. Some simply don’t want to be in the office with others anymore, while others have seen staff shortages and increased workloads. Workers seem to be quitting en masse. A number of those people who quit don’t even have other jobs in sight when they leave.

But who resigns and where?
WalletHub conducted a study of all 50 states and the District of Columbia to find out where people quit smoking in the past month, as well as the past 12 months. Alaska appears to be the national leader in employee quits. South Carolina, Georgia, Delaware and Kentucky round out the top five for quits.
Where is New York?
According to this study, New Yorkers have the fewest employee quits in the entire country (the state was 51st overall). Connecticut was 49th, Massachusetts 48th, Pennsylvania 47th and New Jersey 44th.
Where New York still struggles
We love New York, don’t we? You might hear about residents leaving the state every year for greener pastures, but a recent study ranks the Empire State as a pretty good place to live overall. But, there are some categories in which New York ranked near the bottom of the nation. A website called TOP Agency has compiled a list of all states and ranked them according to eight key dimensions: Affordability, Crime and Safety, Economy, Education, Healthcare, Infrastructure, Opportunity and Quality of Life. Where is New York? Overall, we ranked 19th in the best states to live in. We were 6th in health care and 8th in crime and safety.
As we watch the news every night, the fact that New York ranks so high in crime and safety may come as a surprise to some. TOP Agency narrowed this category down to measures such as; motor vehicle theft and damage, hate crimes, burglaries, homicides, property crimes, robbery rates, fraud and identity theft, mass shooting victims, sex offenders, motor vehicle fatalities and death by fire. The rates for each metric have been broken down per 100,000 people from the year 2020. So consider the state’s overall population and the fact that most of the highest violent crimes are committed in New York City.
Where we need improvement
New York ranked 47th overall for affordability and 44th for economy.
