We bet a lot of people out there think all their problems will be solved if only they made more money, but a new survey reveals that’s not necessarily true. Notorious B.I.G. used to sing about “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” and a LinkedIn Learning study seems to back that up, with the poll noting that those who make more money tend to have more stress at the office.
According to the poll, 68% of people who make more than $200,000 a year say they are stressed at work, while only 47% of those making between $35,000 and $50,000 and 38% of those making between $50,000 and $75,000 say the same.
- And making a lot of money doesn’t necessarily mean folks are satisfied with their job either. In fact, the greatest job satisfaction can be found with those making between $50K and $75K (81%), while only 79% of those making between $200K and $250K, and 74% of those making more than $250K say they have job satisfaction.
- Overall, those between the ages of 37 and 52, a.k.a. Gen Xers, are the most stressed by work (57%), while 52% of Baby Boomers (53 and up) agree, with Millennials the least stressed (44%). Unfortunately Millennials are also the generation with the lowest job satisfaction (72%), compared to Gen Xers (76%) and Boomers (78%).
