Would You Give Up Your Job For One That Pays Less?

Anyone who saw Monday's episode of House knows that Kal Penn is no longer part of the cast. His character shocked viewers by committing suicide on the show, and off-screen he made an unexpected career decision that has people talking.

The actor is taking his talent from the hospital set to the White House and will assume his new role as associate director in the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs. He commented, "There's not a lot of financial reward in these jobs. Obviously, the opportunity to serve in a capacity like this is an incredible honor."

Undoubtedly, Penn's previous well-paying jobs allow him greater flexibility than most of us, but would you be able to voluntarily give up your position for one that pays less?
