We’re not that into our jobs. No, really. Most American workers are unhappy with their work and calling it in.
Last year, CBS News did a report on the American worker and found that 51% are disengaged, meaning they do the bare minimum to make their paycheck. Another 16% are “actively disengaged,” meaning they spend time at work complaining about the job, the company, and anything else they can think of. The keyword is “actively.” These are the employees who are acting out of their unhappiness, spreading negativity, and ruining workplace culture.
