Most persons are happy with their jobs.  A recent Bankrate-dot-com survey finds the average worker rates their job satisfaction at a seven out of ten.  And half of those gave a rating of at least eight.  UNO Business Professor Mark Rosa says he’s not surprised.

 

Some employers scaled back benefits during the recession, including raises.  Rosa says workers are starting to see some of these perks come back, which makes for better productivity in the workplace.

 

While millennial workers were least satisfied with their jobs with a score of six-point-nine, Rosa says the Baby Boomers are the most happy with a score of seven-point-two.

 

Those in households with annual incomes of over 80-thousand-dollars gave an average rank of seven-point-five. Those under 30-thousand-dollars averaged a six-point-six.
