Survey shows many U.S. workers have a stronger sense of security
By Lauren Weber | The Wall Street Journal
Just under half of U.S. workers said they felt satisfied with their jobs last year—the happiest they’ve been in a decade, according to a new report from the Conference Board, a research group that focuses on economics and business conditions.
Some 49.6% of workers reported being satisfied with their jobs overall last year, edging up from 48.3% in 2014. An improving labor market, a decline in layoffs, stronger wage growth and expanding job opportunities are driving that increase, said Gad Levanon, the board’s chief economist for North America.
