While the number of jobs added in June trounced expectations, another measure also paradoxically ticked up: More unemployed people said their reason for being jobless was quitting than any other month of the pandemic.

In June, 164,000 more unemployed people quit or voluntarily left their jobs, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, bringing the total number of so-called job leavers to 942,000 for the month. That latter figure is a new pandemic-era high for people who quit and remain unemployed.
