Posted: Updated:

You might have a loud talker in the cubicle next to you or the food in the lunch room might not be so great.

Still, most of us get over these little annoyances. But for 16% of Americans, they find work unbearable. They hate their jobs.

Monster.com looked at how we compared to other countries and American workers are the most unhappy.

Behind the U.S. are British workers 12% of them don't like their jobs.

Germany is also showing double-digits dissatisfaction.

So who loves work the most? Our neighbors to the north Canada.

As for the U.S., monster doesn't nail the unhappiness down to one factor. A lot of things go into job satisfaction, but one factor is money.

21% of workers who made less then 50,000 dollars a year said they hated their jobs compared to only 10% of Americans making over 50,000 who hate their jobs.

And in recent months, lower-wage workers have been taking to the streets, going on strike to protest those wages.

But despite all the dissatisfaction, most Americans 53% like their job.

Some even say they love it so much that they'd do it for free.
