You read that right – 70% of Americans hate their jobs.

What’s fueling the discontent?  The survey finds bad managers lead to bad attitudes and lost productivity.

the U.S. an estimated $450 billion to $550 billion annually.”

On the plus side, the poll finds 30% of the 150,000 workers surveyed enjoy their jobs and bosses.
