Retired English Teacher
Please take a look at the sentence below.
"Many young people quit their well-paying (A. jobs, B. work) in the cities and returned to their home towns to grow organic vegetables."
I know that A is correct, but why not B?
I asked this question because according to Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, work means "a job you are paid to do ..." and also because both "out of a job" and "out of work" can mean "out of employment." I do need language experts' explanations. Thank you.
I have a well-paid job.
My work is well paid.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

I feel ashamed that I couldn’t get rid of that. It was by mistake and I am deeply hurt doing that to a towering figure, MikeNewYork . I just wanted to know how they work. Your forgiveness, MikeNewYork. Apologize!
