Trump economy gives workers freedom to tell employers to ‘take this job and shove it’

Sept. 11, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the latest Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey:

“It has been more than 17 years since Americans felt as comfortable about their ability to find their next job as they do today, and that is the great news from today’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover report from the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“Ultimately freedom in the workforce is the ability to go all Johnny Paycheck on a bad employer and quit, or from a more high-minded perspective have the job future certainty to pursue your dream in another field. When people feel secure and confident, they feel comfortable pursuing other opportunities and the just released July report shows that Americans are embracing this freedom at a greater rate than at any time since just after the original 9/11 attack.

“This is just one more confirmation that America is coming back and that the President’s policies of lower taxes and regulation combined with putting America first when it comes to international trade deals is reinvigorating our nation’s winning spirit household by household.”
