US Workers Least Likely To Seek Work Abroad: Majority Of 21 To 30 Year Old Americans Willing To Relocate To Outside US

From The Wall Street Journal, Real Time Economics, "Americans Don’t Fancy Jobs Abroad. Oh, Except Millennials." by Jonathan House:
American workers are among the world’s least likely to seek employment abroad, although attitudes are changing among younger generations, a new study on worker mobility shows.

The Boston Consulting Group and The Network, an alliance of global recruiting websites, surveyed 200,000 workers in 189 countries and found that just 35% of U.S. respondents were willing to relocate to another country. That was the lowest percentage among the 31 largest countries surveyed.

However, 59% of American respondents between the ages of 21 and 30 said they would be willing to go abroad.
