More good news courtesy of the provincial government's recent work environment survey: according to the report, 49 percent of employees agreed with statement "Overall, I am satisfied in my work as a BC Public Service employee." Meanwhile, a more detailed breakdown of the survey obtained by Public Eye, show 32 percent gave a neutral response to that statement while 19 percent disagreed. Those results may not seem that bad. But a recent Statistics Canada report using data from the 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey: Mental Health and Well-being found that just 8.6 percent of the employed population aged 18 to 75 reported job dissatisfaction - with 6 percent of workers being "not too satisfied" and 2 percent being "not at all satisfied."
