(CNN) - Dissatisfied with your job? Have an annoying boss? Or just flat out hate work altogether? You're not alone.
A new survey says a lot of Americans aren't happy at work. 16 percent of Americans find work unbearable. They hate their jobs.
Monster.com looked at how we compared to other countries, and American workers are the most unhappy.
Behind the U.S. are British workers, 12 percent of them don't like their jobs.
Germany is also showing double digit dissatisfaction.
So who loves work the most? Our neighbors to the north - Canada.
As for the U.S., Monster doesn't nail the unhappiness down to one factor.
A lot of things go into job satisfaction, but one factor is money.
Twenty-one percent of workers who made less than $50,000 a year said they hated their jobs, compared to only 10 percent of Americans making over $50,000 who hate their jobs.
And in recent months, lower-wage workers have been taking to the streets, going on strike to protest those wages.
