Unhappiness at work on the rise

A recent study has found a whopping 78 per cent of Australian workers are unhappy with their jobs and would like to make a career change.
The survey, conducted by Martin College which has campuses in Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, also found that nine per cent of Australians went as far as to say they hated their jobs.
So why are so many working in jobs they dislike? Warren Jacobson, managing director of Martin College, says it’s because most people think it’s too hard to make the switch.
“A quarter of Australian workers who are not happy with their career haven’t changed because they think it’s easier to stay where they are, and 14 per cent say they just don’t have time,” Jacobson explains.
