Yahoo - Job Satisfaction Poll
WASHINGTON - A majority of Americans say they find satisfaction in their jobs, according to an Associated Press poll, though many express concerns about job stress, health care and retirement benefits.
Seven in 10 surveyed said they are paid fairly. Men were more likely than women to feel this way.
The poll found that 42 percent said their jobs were interesting nearly all of the time. One-half of those surveyed said their job is interesting most of the time, but has dull stretches.
Some 61 percent felt strongly that they do a good job balancing work and family. About the same number of men and women made this claim, although those who work more than 40 hours a week were less certain they have struck the balance.
Those most likely to say they were very satisfied were white, married, college-educated, homeowners and Republicans.
