The money does not make you happy, says the vernacular. In science, that’s different: money makes people happy to a degree. The others called for the money to be used for the many low-paid professors. The money could be used to improve the inadequate IT infrastructure. The funds would be well spent for admission, for all-day schools, for more teachers, as suggested by others.
Less money and less effort means more enjoyment.
The employer portal kunununu has evaluated around one million member ratings of more than 200,000 companies in Germany and calculated a “lucky score” based on the factors above-average behavior, collegial cohesion, exciting tasks and working atmosphere. After that, the most satisfied employees in Germany are working in the Hanseatic city. Not only that a constant cash shower is better than a blessing, but also that money can increase satisfaction beyond a certain wage level.
“So the recipe for more joie de vivre means spending more and more money for the same number of hours,” he says. This includes, above all, young women with a medium education, generally with a fixed salary of less than 2,000 USD (gross), in whose professional environment often a home office is possible. They work between 30 and 40 hours per week.
The knowledge workers are people with academic degrees, an above-average gross income of USD 3,000 and more, who work in the creative, higher administration or science sectors. In the rarest cases it is exactly 40 hours per week. The “salary optimisers” are predominantly young people with vocational training, who are barely collectively employed and who work in the manufacturing, finance or craft industries.
The weekly working time is 40h or more.
People with vocational training and often changing incomes between $ 2,000 and $ 3,000 (gross) are at home in the social professions. These are active in the areas of health care, social work and education and often at home in shifts. Workers are self-employed workers who are often employed under collective agreements and are employed in the construction, automotive or catering industries.
They often have less than 40 hours per week. “If you work harder and harder, you will become more unhappy,” says the scientist, who works and works at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics and at the Chair of Macroeconomics and Economics at the University of Bonn. According to the study, the likelihood that the unemployed will suffer from lack of money is greater than the lack of a job.
Even those who receive only 100 USD more, who does this regularly, is satisfied.
