Highly paid bankers less happy than hairdresse­rs


Almost a third of people are unhappy at work, with managers, lawyers and bankers among the least satisfied, researcher­s have said.

The happiest employees are hairdresse­rs, with three out of five looking forward to going back to work after a day off. Beauty therapists, childcare workers and plumbers were also among the most satisfied.

Workers earning less than £15,000 (Dh105,000) were far happier than those in the £40,00 to £45,000 income bracket, according to the survey of 1,000 adults by City & Guilds. The organisati­on’s “happiness index” showed that many bosses believed their staff were actually less satisfied with their jobs than was the case.
