business news in context, analysis with attitude

Axios reports this morning that the Conference Board is out with new figures suggesting that "workers in the U.S. are pretty happy: Job satisfaction is at a 35-year-high."

According to the story, "The numbers complicate the popular narrative about unmotivated workers quiet quitting or putting in the bare minimum.

"Job switching and a strong labor market play a big role here. Those who recently started a new job — a number that's been historically high over the past few years — saw much bigger jumps in work satisfaction."

And the workers who are unhappy?  Well, they change jobs until they find one that makes them happy.  That's the advantage of low unemployment numbers.
