What prevents you from jumping ship is the commitment of your employer
to you. If they treat you well, give you a fair wage, and are committed
to retaining you, a higher salary should never be an issue. For, if you

such that someone else would offer you significantly more?

I'd say the jumping-ship thing is a red herring. I'd also offer that the
ability to manage one's personal finances, including fallout from
divorces, the economic downturn, etc., is not linked to being a good or
bad technical writer or employee.

comfortable if I knew I was hiring someone who's exercised some
responsibility in their private finances as well as their professional
