'Not necessarily true. You can tell your boss that you really want to stay but XYZ is preventing you from staying. This is more negotiation skills than anything'

I think I understand your point, and yes! negotiation skills are vital to improving any professional career. However, it is a dangerous game. Some years ago, I had that mindset that I was just doing negotiation but after ending unemployed for saying that kind of comment I changed my mind. And it is really hard when you have bills to pay to end up unemployed out of nowhere, it is a situation where you find that you need to do everything to avoid that to happen again.

BTW, I agree with everything else.
