After Spring Festival there has been a job-quitting "boom", and many experts say that by quitting their jobs people have acted either irrationally or against professional ethics. But the situation is not as bad as the experts make it out to be, says an article in People's Daily. Excerpts:

The rise in the number of people quitting their jobs after Spring Festival has attracted wide attention. The manufacturing sector suffers the most because of such undue resignations.

Being in business for years, manufacturing units should know why people resign and how to prevent them from doing so or deal with the consequences. Companies that want to retain talents should improve their pay and working conditions, without which they could face a higher resignation rate.

For employees, they might resign for the first or the second time to demand better pay and working conditions, but they cannot keep on citing such reasons for quitting job after job.

The labor market needs rational mobility. Employees can quit whenever they want as long as they do not violate regulations. The smoother the labor mobility, the greater the guarantee that people will find the job of their choice and suitability.
