Employer loyalty

I don't believe in employer loyalty. I used to. And I've been at the receiving end of employers both appealing to my loyalty as well as had to keep job searches quiet because disloyalty was frowned on. Employers are usually quick to take advantage of our cultures reverence for loyalty.

But I've also watched folks get laid off simply because times were hard. No loyalty. In one case, laying off someone who had turned down a lucrative job offer out of loyalty. Employers have little loyalty to employees. It's called a job market for a reason.

My services go to the highest bidder, to whoever offers me the best deal. Mind you, that doesn't mean it's the one offering the most money. But I'd leave any job in a heartbeat for something better. They've shown me they'll find cheaper ways to run their businesses in a heartbeat.
