أغلبية الأمريكيين غير سعداء في عملهم

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

An annual survey suggets that Americans who still have a job are less satisfied with their work than at any time in the last two decades.

Researchers found that only 45% of workers were happy with their jobs, dropping from 49% in 2008.

The Conference Board research group concluded that the recession was only partly to blame for the drop.

They said dissatisfaction had been growing because incomes were not keeping pace with inflation.

Another reason was that fewer people were finding their jobs interesting.

The job satisfaction level was the lowest recorded by the Conference Board in more than 22 years of studying the issue.

"It says something troubling about work in America. It is not about the business cycle or one grumpy generation" says Linda Barrington, CB's managing director of human capital.

The researchers added that the soaring cost of health insurance had affected workers' salaries.

Economists say that if the job satisfaction trend is not reversed, it could affect US productivity and competitiveness.

Several factors affect job satisfaction including the amount of payment, availability of incentives, the relationship between workers and their boss, the relationship between workers themselves, does the working environment healthy and encouraging friendly environment including team work, what about other values like honesty, commitments and responsibility, etc.

I think what makes someone satisfied at his work that he gets the appreciation from his/her manager when s/he conducts the required work perfectly. I don't agree with the trend that the salary is the crucial factor in making satisfaction at work.

Mohammed Alafi, Tripoli, Libya

TO feel satisfied with our job we need:

1- enough income to satisfy our needs

2-good managers who listen to their workers & keep their workers rights

4- when the skilled workers have the right to make their own touch(not work in tradition way everyday)

and all factors which make good work enviroment
