job satisfaction keeps falling special research report Photo by
This paper uses both cross-section and panel information on employees in OECD countries to examine job values and outcomes over the 1990s. Job values have been stable over the 1990s, and are not noticeably cyclical. Despite rising wages and falling hours, overall job satisfaction is either stagnant or falling. These movements are not due to changes in the type of workers. A number of pieces of evidence point to stress and hard work as being at least an important part of what has gone wrong with employees' jobs. Last, we find increasing inequality in a number of job outcomes. We also find that the young and the ...
The concept of food miles originated in 1990 in the United Kingdom. It was conceived by Andrea Paxton, who wrote a research paper that used the term to describe the distance that food travels from the farm where it is produced on to the kitchen in which it is consumed. On average, food travels between 1,500 to every time that it is delivered to the consumer. The distance products travel from farms to end consumers is 25% farther in 2007 than it was in 1980. Some scholars believe that the increase is due to the globalization of trade; the focus of food supply bases into fewer, larger districts; drastic changes in delivery ...
Dissatisfied with work? Guess what? You're likely the cause.
found that only 45% of us are happy with our jobs. This is down 16% since their first survey in 1987. But wait. A 2005 survey by the same firm shows these recent stats to represent only a 5% decline in job satisfaction ( U.S. Job Satisfaction Keeps Falling ) during the past 5 years – and we’ve had a tough economy to deal with. What I found very interesting is that The Conference Board’s 2005 report cited rapid advancements in technology and employees’ changing expectations as the culprits behind the 2005 results. In their 2009 survey, the why-and-wherefores of the decrease are a bit more vague with John ... market research, surveys and trends

Bring home the bacon AND fry it up?
" which it called "The Rise of Wives." Based on census data, the Pew found that in nearly a third of heterosexual marriages, the wife is better educated than her husband and although men, overall, still earn more than women, wives are now the primary breadwinner in 22 percent of couples (up from only 7 percent in 1970). This has been a significant shift to have occurred in a mere 30 years and as individuals and a society we are still scrambling to catch up.

Man City turn on style for Sheikh
Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan may have taken two years to visit his Eastlands empire - but Manchester City ensured the wait was worthwhile as they showed an impressive return on his vast investment.

Sheikh Mansour's presence lifted spirits inside Eastlands even before a City side containing six England internationals delivered a performance fit for their ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Need Statistic on What Percentage of Americans are ...
I am in need of a statistical estimate which can take the form of a percent (i.e. 60%) or a number (i.e. an estimated 500,000) of Americans who are unhappy at work. It is essential that a reference is provided. I do not necessarily need a hard-core scientific study. A survey conducted by an organization would work -- as long as a reference is attached. This is going to be incorporated into a marketing piece, so the bigger number of unhappy worker you can come up with (and substantiate) the better. This stat does not have to super recentl. I'd be happy with anything dated 2002 or later. Of course if I have a ...
