84% of workers planning to look for new job: pollWouldn't it be just awesome if we could run our governments more like businesses?

Workers can’t wait to dump their employers: 84 percent of respondents to a survey say they plan to actively look for a new job this year.
That’s up from 60 percent who said they planned to do so last year. Only 5 percent said they intend to stay in their current position.
The survey was done by Manpower subsidiary Right Management. “It’s staggering,” said Joanne Stroud of Right Management.
Senior leadership within organizations is largely to blame, Stroud said. While many workers have gone without salary increases for two to three years and are now doing the job of one to two people, they see and hear less from senior leadership about the vision for the future and how they see the company evolving and reshaping themselves, she explained.
I'd bet they'd run a lot better if only they had the Invisible Fist of the Marketplace jammed to the elbow up their collective asses.
Ah, but of course they already do.
