63881September 6, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. —  "For the most part employees have been remarkably understanding about the situations of their employers," Steve Langerud, director of professional opportunities at DePauw University, tells MSNBC. Langerud is quoted in a story on how "overworked, underpaid and unappreciated" workers aren't waiting for the economy to improve before changing jobs -- they're looking now.

"They are ‘taking one for the team’ in many cases, but banking on a return in salary, benefits, responsibilities when things turn around," Langerud says. "At the same time, as things drag on they are keenly aware of other opportunities that would improve their situation."
