Employees Ready To Jump Jobs When Market Improves

In this market, someone telling you "You're lucky to have a job" has never sounded so true. While there are many frustrated job seekers out there who can't seem to catch a break, there is apparently an entire group of gainfully employed folks who can't wait to jump ship when the market improves.

A survey from Opinion Research Corporation finds there's a majority of workers - 80% - who would consider leaving their job if they were presented with another opportunity. Twenty-five percent of those who responded to the survey said they have standing plans to leave their job when other companies are hiring again. Turns out younger employees are the ones most chomping at the bit for a better situation.
