Stuck at a job you hate?

How many people do you know who hate their jobs – but stay at them because they don’t want to lose their health insurance? The Economist notes that a traditional strength of the American economy has been the mobility of its work force, which is another way of saying that Americans are free to move where the jobs are. But caught between falling house prices and the need for health insurance, workers are staying put even if they would be much happier – and more productive – doing another job.
