There’s a new survey out on jobs, and one thing is for sure: Americans feel like they’re UNDERPAID . . . even if they are happy in their role, and feel like their work has a positive impact.
58% of people say they are either “somewhat” or “very underpaid.” 30% say they’re appropriately paid . . . 5% say they may be “somewhat overpaid” . . . and only 2% of people admit they are “very overpaid.”
63% of people said they’re happy with the work they do . . . 16% are unhappy . . . and 75% say their work has a positive impact. Only 1% of people say their work has a “very negative impact.” (Sadly, they didn’t say what that job is.)
When asked about occupations, the ones people feel are OVERPAID includes: Politicians . . . pro athletes . . . CEOs . . . lawyers . . . investment bankers . . . real estate agents . . . and doctors.
The occupations people feel are UNDERPAID include: Factory workers . . . farmers . . . nurses . . . restaurant workers . . . retail employees . . . daycare workers . . . and teachers.
