85% of People HATE Their Jobs

According to a Gallup Poll released in August 2017, eighty-five percent of people worldwide admit to hating their jobs in an anonymous survey. And if you are reading this right now you may be in that category.

Here are the 5 major reasons why people are becoming unhappy with their current vocation


Many of us are working one or 2 jobs and working 50+ hours a week just to make ends meet. Then we seem to always come up with too much month at the end of the money. That paycheck is the result of your work, not the reason for your work. Maybe it is what your parents wanted you to do. Maybe it was the career that you learned that keeps you in debt with student loans. Maybe it was the promises that you feel were made to you as you were training for your career. If you think that it is the paycheck then that is why you hate your job. Once you reach your goal, you will always want more.


Managers come and managers go and the company remains the same. Managers are the leaders of the workplace and an ineffective manager cannot lead. Leaders should be bringing the best out in their followers by inspiring them to do more. When a worker deserves praise the Manager should be the first one to give the praise. When this doesn’t happen it has been shown that the workers’ production levels suffer. Many people in the workplace hate their managers because of this one simple thing. Workers are not appreciated.

Another thing that adds to this is that so many people today are in the service industry because so many of the manufacturing jobs have moved offshore because wages are so much lower and they can get long hours out of the workforce. The managers that we have been trained in company oriented skills and not in people skills. We have a bunch of leaders who aren’t trained on how to lead.


Many times you like what you do. You like your boss. But the environment that you work in is just not suitable for you. It just stinks. It could be the corporate structure or the actual location of where you work. It could be other relationships from work. Whatever it is you just don’t like being there. Every week is the same. Another Monday has come again. Another Monday

But we know that if we don’t go to work that we will not have a full paycheck next week. And we also know that if we play hooky that there is a chance that we might get caught and lose this boring job that we hate and put us in the unemployment line. So we get up begrudgingly and go to work.


Another thing that causes people to be discontent with their jobs is that the harder they work the less money they have. Median income continues to drop as our daily lives get more expensive. Kids, vacations, holidays, sports and many more activities add to this list. Husband and wife are both working and in some cases, both may have 2 jobs. But the after-tax money they are able to accumulate simply is not allowing them to make it. And the opportunity in the workplace is no longer there as it was 20 or 30 years ago.

Job Security

Let’s face it. There is no job security anywhere in the workplace today. The days of the 40-year plan no longer work. For those of you not familiar with the 40-year plan:

Go to school. Get a good education. Get a good paying job. Work for the same company for 40 years. Retire with a gold watch and a pension and enjoy your golden years.

The first Major company I worked for had a 25-year plan Retire with a good pension. I left the company 10 years later. This same thing has happened to hundreds of thousands of workers’ in America, losing jobs they have had for 20, 30, 40 years. When the company ends its pension program or moves offshore, the workers’ generally have not increased their skills in other areas as prevention if this were to happen in the future. We no longer have security in any job.

And today we have people all over America on Social Security that are barely able to make it month to month.

Add all of these things up and what do you get, JOB HATRED, across the board.
