25 to 30-year-olds are more interested in a job that gives them a healthy work/life balance than they are in the pay they receive. A survey done by Fidelity shows that on the average they are willing to give up as much as $7,600 in pay for a better situation at the office.
In their pursuit of happiness, many are always looking for a new and a better. Somewhat typical of this generation, when Chris Loos, 25, started a new job that will pay him up to $7,000 less a year than his previous job, he said, “I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited in my life about anything.”
As uplifting as this outlook may be, Paul reminds us that it is the peace of God that we are ultimately searching for. –--Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
