In 2018, workers quit their jobs at the highest rate in nearly two decades, with salary being one of their key motivating factors.

According to experts, workers who leave their old job for a new one see an average 15 percent increase in compensation. That’s why Glassdoor Chief Economist Andrew Chamberlain tells CNBC Make It quitting “is a smart move, as there’s a clear advantage to increasing your earning potential by switching jobs.”
