50% of Employees Unhappy with Job and Workload

One in four British workers – around six million employees – is unhappy with their job, and 40 per cent describe their work as ’stressful’, according to a new report.

The report, published by YouGov and the Trades Union Congress (TUC), is based on a poll of 2,850 working people in the UK.

According to the results, 46 per cent of workers complained of an increasing workload, while 42 per cent said their wages did not meet their cost of living.

The TUC’s general secretary, Brendan Barber, said: ‘There are some challenging figures here for British employers; and there are lessons here for politicians too.’
