Quitting for more money is new?

America believes in education: the average professor earns more in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week. (Evan Esar)

News Flash from the Wall Street Journal:

People are changing jobs to get more money!

Even worse, the best employees, the most valued workers, are the ones most likely to quit for more money. These are the best paid people that are quitting for more money.

Seriously, that was in the WSJ.  It was a first. And it still applies today.

The reason it made news is because all the old surveys and studies show you will be dissatisfied with money but not quit over it unless it is way low.  You are supposed to quit because you dislike your boss, the company policies, your duties, or your advancement opportunities.

Some studies are showing that people are now quitting for money more often.  This is probably caused by years of 3% raises.  All of a sudden money is more than a dissatisfier, it is a reason to change jobs all on its own.

I’m not suggesting YOU quit only for money.  I’m just letting you know that I’m willing to learn something new.

Maybe you should get a copy of this posting and put it on your boss’s desk.
