Work is not the greatest of things that we have to do in life. Most people in my experience don’t like their job. I’ve heard that in order to be happy in your job, you must like two of three things: the people you work with, the work itself, or the pay. Pick two and you’ll be happy.
I’m sure there are plenty of other, more specific reasons to be happy, but I’d say these three things do a pretty good job of summing it up. So what about the other majority of people who only have one of these three things, or worse, none of them? There is a good chance that in this job market, they will have trouble finding something else even if they are unhappy in their job, so are they just stuck in an unhappy position?
