Just because.  Candy says that Whitey picked up his check and moved on - gave a couple token excuses, but just wanted to move on down the road.

These men are part of a pretty transient society always looking for the greener grass.  It was pretty common for them to move from job to job for no reason other than to just keep moving.  This is actually in stark contrast to Lennie and George who wish to stay in one place for a while to build up a stake but have to keep moving on because of the bad things that Lenny does.
