Librarians come 43 on a list of happiest UK workers | School Library Digest | Scoop.it
The Librarian's insight:

Which would you be happier doing - serving pints or serving God? Helpful advice on how to make those difficult life choices is on hand.

The Cabinet Office has been looking at the relationship between different jobs and levels of life satisfaction, and publicans, it turns out, are in the unhappiest occupation of all. They are closely followed by brickies and debt collectors.

The happiest workers, the research suggests, are vicars and priests. Members of the clergy enjoy the most satisfying lives - but farmers and fitness instructors are pretty jolly too.

If you bring it up to the library’s attention, they will say “thank you” and not remove the posting. If you persist, they state “Libraries do not bow to pressures to remove materials, images or information from our collections/premises.”
