Sure, that's absolutely true. What is also true is that during the last few years, with relatively high unemployment, many companies have been increasing workloads on their workforce with little/no raises and basically saying "you think you can do better in this economy, feel free to leave."

Not that the employers are under any kind of real obligation, of course, to give raises or hire additional employees, but there's really no question that they have been increasing corporate margins and hoarding cash to the disadvantage of their workforce.

Which is legal and all, don't get me wrong, but in times of high(er) unemployment, the "vote with your feet" option isn't as readily available.
