Why would an employer make you want to quit instead of just firing you?

What reasons could he/she have for doing so? 

Update:

    You quitting assures you don't get unemployment.

    Generally for fear that you'll try to apply for unemployment insurance. That's usually a huge hassle for employers. If you quit voluntarily you can't even think of applying, so there's that.

    So they don't have to pay unemployment is about the only reason I could figure they'd try to make you quit.

    So you can't collect any unemployment if you can get it where you live for being fired and to give them the smug satisfaction of being able to say "We didn't fire him, he quit".

    So that he can make all his friends and acquaintances feel bad for him. He can make it look like you’re a slacker who didn’t want to work. If he fires you, there’s nobody to blame except himself unless he has a damn good reason to fire you.
