Here's some cheery news for a Friday: more workers than ever are dissatisfied with their jobs. According to a story reported by Reuters, employee dissatisfaction is the highest ever measured.
In a survey of 5,000 U.S. households, more than half of all respondents said they dislike their current jobs, compared to less than 40 percent in a similar survey conducted 20 years ago.
These days, the lowest levels of job satisfaction are among younger workers, the survey found. Only 39 percent of respondents aged 25 and younger said they liked their current jobs — the lowest level in the survey's 20-year history — compared to 45 percent for workers between 45 and 54.
In terms of residence, the Northeast fared poorly, with workers in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania reporting particularly high levels of dissatisfaction. Perhaps the crowding, commuting nightmares, and high taxes are to blame?
