This doesnt applyto all business owners (so usual suspects, please do not attack me...) but it's pretty much common knowledge that in this tight job market, employers dont have to do much to retain it's workers and keep them happy. Including myself, I know many who no longer get any sort of raise, bonus, or anything. People are unhappier at their jobs than in the past. Employers just arent good to their people for the most part anymore... bc they dont HAVE to be. Where else are unhappy employees gonna go? Ok... so when the economy rebounds and the job market gets going again (hopefully) what will be the result? Will employers end up paying in the long run for their actions (i.e. good employees jumping ship, disgrunted employees writing bad job reviews on employment forums/job sites, etc.).
