Workers in the U.S. are most satisfied with their relationships with co-workers and the physical safety conditions of their workplaces, according to Gallup’s annual poll on work and education.

On the other end of the spectrum, Americans are least satisfied with the amount of work-related stress and their incomes.

Over the past year, workers have become more positive about the amount of recognition they receive for accomplishments, their co-worker relationships, their bosses and their job security. Half of those surveyed said they were “completely” satisfied with their jobs.
