The rise in unemployment has caused the average American worker to pick up more hours and take on more responsibility in an effort to fill the void of laid-off co-workers. The result? According to Monster's 2003 Work/Life Balance Survey released July 29, 2003, 57 percent of Americans consider themselves overworked, and a shocking 83% are unsatisfied with their job.
Americans are not the only workers with long hours. 57 percent of European Monster Meter respondents put in more than 40 hours per week; however, U.S. workers are known around the globe for working long hours and many acknowledge the trend: 57 percent of Monster users consider themselves overworked.
"It's no surprise that workers are putting in longer hours than they'd like, perhaps making up for company downsizing in the midst of an economy that is slow to recover," said Jeff Taylor, Founder and Chief Monster. "However, today's worker should seek ways to create work/life harmony - it's the right balance to keep you happy in your job and your life."
2003 Work/Life Balance Results The Monster Meter asked:
1) "Are you happy with your work/life balance?"*
