Less money for a better balance between work and life? According to a new survey, that was a big YES for many Americans.

Prudential’s latest “Pulse of the American Worker: A Third Year Begins — Life and Work in the Pandemic Era” survey found that one in five workers would be willing to take a pay cut if that meant having a more stable work/life balance.

Many of these workers would take an average 10% pay cut to achieve this.

The survey also found that 22% of workers have switched employers since the beginning of the pandemic and half of those are looking for a new job.

Would you be willing to take a pay cut for more flexibility in your schedule? Do you think things will change once we’re finally done with the pandemic?
