Half of Americans are looking for new jobs

Yahoo! HotJobs surveyed more than 5,000 US workers and found nearly half plan to search for a new job in 2007. And that number only represents those who will actively look. Another two-thirds of currently employed respondents said they may not actively seek out a new job, but that they would be open to one if the right opportunity came along. 75% of respondents said they did not receive the bonus or the raise they expected for their performance in 2005. More than half of the people said they have to work on their days off at least once per month, and more than one-third said they do some aspect of work every single day. 27% think they can get better salaries elsewhere. 19% don’t feel there is any potential for career growth in their current jobs. 19% want a better benefits package.
