Job Satisfaction Rises, But Not to Its Old Peak
When coupled with the 50.6 percent who said they were "fairly" satisfied in 2002, that leaves only 16.1 percent who said they were dissatisfied and of those, only 1.7 percent said they were "very" dissatisfied. This was a decline from 1992 when 22.4 percent said they were "somewhat" or "very" dissatisfied. Women were less satisfied in 2002 than were men, with 71.7 percent of women journalists saying "fairly" or "very" satisfied compared with 86.6 percent of male journalists. No significant differences were found for journalists of color.
