Original Article

"The share of job seekers relocating has fallen dramatically since the late 1980s, when more than a third moved to take new opportunities elsewhere, according to surveys from outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. In the 1990s, job-related moves ebbed and flowed at between 20% and 35% of the labor force, then fell below 20% after 2000. About 10% of job seekers relocated in the first half of this year, Challenger said."
