Or maybe the people who said they’d take ten to fifty percent pay cuts in exchange for a ‘dream’ gig in the financial services industry were being serious?

Money isn’t everything, even on Wall Street. When asked if they would accept a “dream” job if it paid half as much as their current position, one-third of about 200 respondents said “yes” in the FINS.com online question forum Sign or Decline. Some 58% of respondents said they would jump for a 25% paycut, while almost three out of four respondents would accept 10% less in pay to take a dream job.
