Fashion and retail workers were terrified in 2010 with the economy in such a critical state, so they shut up and dealt with their jobs.But now, they’re “looking for payback,” and are willing to make the necessary moves to better their work lives and get more compensation, reports Arnold J. Carr at Women’s Wear Daily

“In 2012, money is the key driver. You get the sense that employees are cautious, but talent is restless,” Celeste Gudas, chief executive officer of 24 Seven told WWD.

The 2012 Salary Survey and Job Market Report from talent recruiter firm 24 Seven looked at how fashion and retail workers are dealing with their jobs.

Job satisfaction and loyalty are both very low. Nine out of 10 say that they’re willing to leave for another company, and 70 per cent are thinking about a job change in the next year. Only 16 per cent say that they’re “highly satisfied” with their jobs.
