I'm interested in how our (U.S.) satisfaction with our jobs have trended over the last 30 years. I believe overall satisfaction rates have dropped and the number of people actively looking to change jobs or open to changing jobs has jumped but don't have the data.

Hello again Chrisriche, I am pleased you are satisfied with my findings. The Changing Distribution of Job Satisfaction Abstract ?The distribution of job satisfaction widened across cohorts of young men in the United States between 1978 and 1988, and between 1978 and 1996, in ways correlated with changing wage inequality. Satisfaction among workers in upper earnings quantiles rose relative to that of workers in lower quantiles. An identical phenomenon is observed among men in West Germany in response to a sharp increase in the relative earnings of high-wage men in the mid-1990s. Several hypotheses about the determinants of satisfaction are presented and examined using both cross-section data on these cohorts and panel data from the NLSY and the German SOEP. The evidence is most consistent with workers regret about the returns to their investment in skills affecting their satisfaction. Job satisfaction is especially responsive to surprises in the returns to observable skills, less so to surprises in the returns to unobservables; and the effects of earnings shocks on job satisfaction dissipate over time.? http://ideas.repec.org/p/nbr/nberwo/7332.html Download complete publication here: http://www.nber.org/papers/w7332.pdf -------------- Did job satisfaction really drop during the 1970's? http://www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/1982/11/rpt1full.pdf -------------- 'Job satisfaction'1995-2000 http://edition.cnn.com/2000/CAREER/trends/10/23/job.dissatisfaction/ -------------- Job Satisfaction of Recent Graduates in Financial Services Purdue University Originally Posted: May 28, 2003 http://www.bls.gov/opub/cwc/cm20030522ar01p1.htm Here's a bar chart.
