As the New Year gets underway, many folks are looking for a fresh start and for a lot of them, that includes a different job. Nearly half (46%) of U.S. workers are planning to look for a new job in the next six months, according to new research from human resource consulting firm Robert Half.
The biggest reason they want to make a change? Low pay. The survey of 25-hundred professionals reveals that Gen Z, working parents and those who have been with their company for less than five years are the most likely to switch jobs in early 2023.
