Americans' Job Dissatisfaction Hits 22-Year High

On Tuesday, the Conference Board published results of a survey showing that 55% of American workers are dissatisfied with their jobs, the highest rate in 22 years, the Associated Press reported. My first reaction to this news was to wonder whether there had been a comparable survey of the unemployed. There was: It turns out that last month, The New York Times and CBS did such a survey which concluded that the unemployed are miserable. Given the current economic conditions, you'd think the 5,000 workers polled by the Conference Board would be happy just to have a job.
