Poll Vault: How many years have you been at your job?
This week we celebrated the 10th service anniversary of my co-worker Sean Stangland. His longevity at the Daily Herald far surpasses the national average of 4.4 years with the same employer, according to a study by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in January 2010, the most recent analysis.
Workers in the public sector stay on the job nearly twice as long as private-sector employees: 7.2 years vs. 4.0 years, according to the report.
How long have you been with your employer? Have you switched jobs recently, or are you looking to? Given the current unemployment rate, is your job more palatable now than it was before the economic slump?
