    You can't file for unemployment if you quit, can you?  If you just mean an impulsive quit allows someone else to get hired, that wouldn't seem  to have a net effect on the job market.  Someone would have to 'impulsively' quit and then start their own business.  No idea how common that was ten years ago or now.  Quits have been trending upwards since 2010, but are only about halfway back to prerecession levels.

      reminder.

      On the other hand, you can stay in a job long enough to be laid off because you didn't quit and go someplace else.
