Laid-off U.S. workers finding new jobs, less pay

"Half of U.S. workers laid off in the past year who were questioned in a survey released on Wednesday reported finding new jobs, but often with less pay and in a different field."

"The survey of 807 adults who lost full-time jobs in the past year showed that 49 percent had found new jobs but of those, 49 percent now earn less money."

"Of those with new jobs, 38 percent said they are now employed in a different field, the survey found. Eight percent reported finding part-time work."
