“About 1 in 5 workers overall have considered a professional shift, a signal that the pandemic has been a turning point… Many people told The [Washington] Post that the pandemic altered how they think about what is important in life and their careers. It has given them a heightened understanding that life is short and that now is the time to make the changes they have long dreamed of. The result is a great reassessment of work, as Americans fundamentally reimagine their relationships to their jobs.
“… others want a new location that allows for a different lifestyle. Since the pandemic began, 28 percent of U.S. adults say they have seriously considered moving, the Post-Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University poll finds, and 17 percent say they have already moved, either temporarily or permanently. Adults under age 40 are the most likely to have considered moving or to have already relocated.”
