$25,000 is nothing to sneeze at. It’s enough to cover most Americans’ living expenses for at least a few months. You could even start a business or put a down payment on a home.
Now one employer — Riot Games, the maker of the popular video game League of Legends — will pay its employees $25,000 to quit their jobs, even if they have worked there for only one day.
Other employers are offering a similar deal, including Zappos, which will give employees $2,000 if they want to leave, and Amazon, which is offering $3,000 to workers in its warehouses, and up to $5,000 for more experienced employees.
