People are apparently feeling so good about the current economy that Americans quit their jobs in May at the fastest rate since 2001.

The government report found that the type of employees who are choosing to leave for greener pastures worked in healthcare, social assistance, finance, insurance, transportation, utilities, and warehousing industries. You can be choosy about your job when you know that the odds of getting a better one are in your favor.
