The French “gilets jaunes” (yellow vest) protestors who burned Paris last week evidently are unhappy about more than just gas prices. Office furniture maker Steelcase published a survey noting that France has the lowest proportion of workers who are happy with their environment. Just 5% of French workers surveyed said they were “highly engaged and satisfied” with their companies and workplaces - far below the global average of 13%. On the other hand, workers in India had the highest proportion of happy workers at 28%. The United States, with 14% happy workers, comes in slightly above the global average of 13%.
