(CNN) - Are you just punching the time clock and counting down the hours until your work day is over? You are not alone, according to a somewhat depressing new job satisfaction survey
According to the "Value of Work" survey done by salary.com, most people are miserable in their jobs.
And this is a fairly new trend. There was a significant drop in job fulfillment in 2013. Only 39 percent say they are fulfilled in their work. Compare that to just last year when 59 percent of workers say they were fulfilled in their jobs.
And the negativity doesn't stop there. A majority of us say we are also overworked in our un-fulfilling jobs, not a good combination.
So why are we spending so much time doing something we dislike so much? Experts at salary.com have some ideas.
We have less pride in what we are doing. In the last year, twenty percent fewer people reported feeling proud of their accomplishments at work.
We are less committed. It's no longer the norm to stay in one job for your entire career like it was for the last generation, meaning that only half of us feel that sense of loyalty, while the others are out looking for better jobs.
We may be working just for money. The survey showed 73 percent of workers said they work primarily to get a paycheck, not for other non-monetary benefits.
And one final point from this study, which highlights the stunning dissatisfaction of American workers. Seventy percent of workers said that if they won the lottery, they would be gone from their office the very next day.
