Feeling Trapped at Work? You’re Not Alone
A recent Gallop poll found that nearly 20% of U.S. workers—some 30 million Americans—are underemployed: either jobless or able to only find part-time work.
But there are millions of more who have full-time jobs that aren’t stimulating, don’t pay enough and require working for a boss who couldn’t care less.
Yet in this stressed economy with few new jobs, those workers stay because they feel they have no choice. They are part of a growing number of employees who feel trapped at work—powerless to do anything about it
