If your employer told you tomorrow that you were being relocated to another location, say 500 miles away or so and in an area that you don't really love (or at least you like it less than where you live now), would you make the move? Your other option of course would be to quit and find a new job. Only problem is if you moved you'd make twice what you are making now. So what would you do? I couldn't do it unless I knew people in the area I was moving to. Friends and family are more important to me than a job that pays more money.
