Lack of permanent workplace
Occupational relocation
Resettlement due to job requirements
Some occupations are, by their nature, mobile, requiring workers to constantly move their workplace and sometimes even their home, according to the work at hand. Such moves may be seasonal, and families and whole communities may be able to adapt to the mobility because it is regular. Other moves may be occasional and therefore more stressful.
