It seems that, among the many and sundry other aspects of life that have deteriorated in one way or another over the last few decades in the good 'ol USA, you can add job satisfaction to the list, at least according to this USA Today report on how workers view their jobs.
Declines have been broad-based - job security, wages, recognition, etc. - as overall satisfaction has dropped from 60 percent to just 45 percent over the last 20 years. Though a few years removed from the world of cubicles and annual performance reviews, both of those numbers seem a little high to me.
