More than 70% of Americans say they are dissatisfied with the quality of their jobs, according to a new Gallup poll.
The survey found that a quarter of Americans said they were dissatisfied with their income, while nearly two-thirds said they had lost a job.
“Americans have a general sense of dissatisfaction with their lives, which they attribute to many things, including the economic downturn, the decline in the national debt, the health care law and the financial crisis,” Gallup reported in the poll.
“While Americans express frustration with their economic situation, they also see an improvement in their quality of life, including income and health.”
Gallup found that 44% of respondents said they felt more satisfied than they were in the prior year.
Another 16% said they feel worse than they are, while 8% said the opposite.
Gallup also found that 43% of all respondents say that the economy has improved, with the vast majority of those saying that it has worsened since last year.
The survey was conducted by telephone from March 16-18.
