If you’re reading this, it means you are either wondering at the title of this blog post or you want an answer to get out of his worldwide condition.
Some startling stats I came across a couple of years ago said:
1. 80% of employees don’t think their job is fun (Reuters, 2007)
2. Only 50% of people are satisfied with their jobs (Conference Board, 2007)
3. 32% of all workers call in sick when they are not. (Harris, 2007)
4. Every year, 2.5 million people will quit their jobs (BOLS, 2007)
Just this morning, a young female graduate who got her first job in January 2014 and is currently in her 2nd job confessed saying, “Having a job doesn’t necessarily mean the job is what you want or you are happy in it“.
Today, in Nigeria, the work week begins right after a two-day public holiday for the Muslim festivities. The holiday was to the delight of many because they had escaped Monday. Howbeit, Wednesday (today) is a nightmare as several BBM personal messages read things like, “Gosh! Back to the earth“, “So there’s work tomorrow! Where are my socks, shoes, belt?” The PMs go on and on.
The question is, Why do people hate Monday?
Maybe they liked Wednesday before now, but they suddenly hated it because it had become the Monday of this week.
