Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

We recently posted about a new survey that found Denver suffers from the lowest level of job satisfaction in the country.

When we shared it, we asked folks on Facebook to talk about their job satisfaction, or lack thereof.

This one took us up on the invite, and he didn't have many nice things to say.

Here's his take.

Pay in Denver sux. Same tech job in another state pays 1/3 more for same skills and rent is crazy here, plus u end up working for some trendy millennial douche bag that just graduated from college.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
