Been getting the feeling morale is low at work? Way low? Well, here’s a study that found one-third of employees are unhappy at their work.

And they’re not unhappy in the ho-hum or blasé sense either. People feel intensely about work, according to the study of 1,100 employees by Towers Perrin and market researcher Gang and Gang.

“They feel there are barriers in the workplace that prevent them from doing the kinds of jobs that they want to do,” said Bruce Near, managing director of Towers Perrin in Canada.
