I think that's a bit high. There is a difference in not enjoying your job and hating it. If people truly "hated" their job they would quit.

I've hated jobs that I didn't quit. For a long time.

I was thinking of changing careers a few years from now, but I have a job I love so maybe I ought to stay put.

It doesn't surprise me-the economy sucks, companies making people do more work with less resources, some people have had salaries, benefits, or both cut. Not only that but employer know they have the upper hand and can replace you in a minute....

Very sad.

Americans hate their jobs more than ever before in the past 20 years, with fewer than half saying they are satisfied.
The trend is strongest among workers under the age of 25, less than 39 percent of whom are satisfied with their jobs.
Workers age 45 to 54 have the second lowest level of satisfaction (less than 45 percent), according a survey conducted by The Conference Board, a market information company that also puts out the Consumer Confidence Index and the Leading Economic Indicators.
Older people like their jobs more. Nearly half of all workers over 55 are satisfied with their employment situation.
This echoes January survey by careerbuilder: four out of five U.S. workers do not have their dream jobs. verall, dissatisfaction has spread among all workers, regardless of age, income or residence. Twenty years ago, the first time the survey was conducted, 61 percent of all Americans said they were satisfied with their jobs, according to the representative survey of 5,000 U.S. households, said Lynn Franco, director of the Conference Board's Consumer Research Center.-NBC news
