If you won the lottery today, would you keep working or quit your job? It turns out that 51% of those who participated in a new CareerBuilder survey said that they would continue to work, even after hitting it big in the lottery and 30% said they'd keep the job they have now.

CareerBuilder polled a representative sample of more than 3,000 workers in the U.S. and found out why so many people would choose to stay employed even if they were rolling in cash. 77% said they'd be bored if they didn't work. 76% said work gives them a sense of accomplishment. 42% said they want financial security in addition to their winnings. 23% said they'd miss their coworkers.

For those who would quit their jobs, 48% of the people polled said they would give the proper and standard two week notice or would be willing to stick around until their company could find a a replacement. 13% said they would resign the day they won the lottery. 3% said they would tell off their boss when they quit. 2% said they would just not show up for work at all.
