I'm Happy...Are You?

Time Magazine has come out with its America by the Numbers 2007 report. Part of the report includes a poll on job satisfaction. I've seen librarian polls on job satisfaction before--we've always rated our satisfaction poorly. So, I wasn't surprised to see that only 25.2% of the librarians polled said that they are "very happy."

I would like to just say that I'm in that 25.2%.

Sandwiched right there between door-to-door salespeople and household servants . . .

Do they let the survey participants self-identify their job categories?

Ah, I'm glad you caught that Carter.

I'm not sure about their methodology.
