I work for a large frozen vegetables plant as a refrigeration mechanic. There is roughly 700 people that work there. Today we had a quarterly meeting that basically just is a quick overview of how we are doing and where we can improve. When the slide came up for HR, they had a graph showing hires and terminations (both fires and people who quit). Through the second quarter, they had hired 377 people, and 288 had either quit or been fired. That comes out to about 75%, which is pretty shocking. They tried to spin it that we employees need to create a better environment so people want to stay, which I found kind of funny.
