Gallup: Most Government Workers Like Working in the Public Sector
December 4, 2012
A Gallup poll released Monday shows that more Americans would prefer to have a private sector job than a government job—though nearly twice as many would like government employment than currently have it.
According to the new poll, 60 percent of American adults would rather work for the private sector than 35 percent who would rather work for the government. The survey notes that this remains little changed from a survey conducted in Jan. 2010.
While the attitude of the majority of Americans reflects a different preference, those who currently work for government are pretty satisfied being public servants.
