American Workers’ Job Satisfaction At Highest Level Since 2005

The Conference Board, which is, “a business-research group,” released a report on Wednesday that found 51 percent of American workers were satisfied with their jobs in 2017, which is the highest level since 2005.

The report found that 58 percent of American households with an income above $75,000 are satisfied at work and 45 percent of American households with an income below $75,000 are also satisfied at work.

This is the second straight year that satisfaction at work among those with income under $75,000 has improved.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

“Over the past seven years, Americans report feeling better about their pay along with a greater sense of job security, both features of an economy with a low unemployment rate and a long decline in layoffs. In July, jobless claims continued an extended post-recession slide and hit their lowest level in nearly 50 years.”

The Conference Board “surveyed approximately 1,500 workers about 23 separate topics, from paychecks to commutes.”
