Almost 20% of workers worldwide are miserable

The emotional state of the world's workforce looks dires, with 19 percent reporting to be miserable at work and 60 percent are emotionally detached, according to a new Gallup poll.

The new 2022 State of the Global Workforce Report takes results from its world poll survey in which people from more than 160 countries, 1,000 respondents per country, are surveyed about their life and work. 

The survey shows that 40 percent of respondents experience daily worry, 44 percent experience daily stress and 23 percent of respondents experience daily anger. Daily stress hikes up to 50 percent for American workers. On a global scale, only 21 percent of workers are engaged, but in the U.S. and Canada this number shoots up to 33 percent.
