Survey: Older workers happier with their jobs

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Do you hate your job? We've got  tip for you: Stick it out.

A bi-annual survey by the Associated Press and the Norc Center for Public Affairs Research shows that 90-percent of workers who are 50 years or older are 'very' or 'somewhat' satisfied with their jobs.
