Bad economic times affect workers in more ways than layoffs. Many people stay in jobs they don't like because there's nowhere else to go. Take our poll and tell us about your current situation.
We've talked a lot about layoffs and tips for dealing with the aftermath. But another offshoot of bad economic times is that more people are staying put in jobs that they don't necessarily like because they fear unemployment, or they fear moving to a different job that may turn out to be worse than their current position.
A good many people are even taking cuts in salaries and benefits to stay where they are. I'd like to take an informal poll to see where you guys are in this respect.
