    I think it would be less common to find people who don't like their job. I feel most would pursue a career they're interested in.

    The word "job" has a negative implication on it's surface don't you think?
    Career, labor of love, and passion; are way more melodious to my ear.

    I would say 70% of people hate their jobs after the honeymoon phase.

    I've come to realize more people outwardly hate their jobs than inwardly.  Though, still, many people end up in jobs/careers they don't particularly fancy.  I think more people "like" their jobs, but most people would do something else, given the choice.

    Around 80% of people would hate their jobs. Though jobs can be loving too if taken positively.

    I was actually surprised to read what Oldandwise answered as I feel entirely opposite. Although many people pursue a career they are interested in many do not end up working in that career for varied reasons such as it isn't enough income to pay their bills so they move on to other jobs.

    I think that most people do not like their jobs but, hopefully, in today's marketplace also hope that they appreciate the fact that they even have a job.

    I would think most people despise their job but i believe this because i would assume most people do not find their passion in their job or the positive aspect of it. If you really think about it though the most common jobs are not necessarily something someone could love to begin with. It is difficult to find something you truly enjoy. I once had an amazing job when it came to pay... but 60+ hours of work just to make your employer rich did tickle my fancy. Plus i rather enjoy life than spend over 60 hours a week away from my family.
