Gallup survey shows most U.S. workers unhappy

A new survey shows seven out of 10 workers have either "checked out" at work, or are "actively disengaged."

Gallup surveyed 100 million full time workers.

They found that only 30 percent were engaged and enthusiastic about their workplace. 50 percent were just going through the motions. And 20 percent were "actively disengaged" and hate going to work.

Gallup estimates the last group costs the U.S. as much as $550 billion in economic activity each year.
