According to data released by the European Commission only Greece has lower levels of satisfaction at work (33%).
The factors taken into account when determining the levels of satisfaction were the hours worked, the organisation of the work, health and security at work and the attitude of their superiors.
Some 63% of Spaniards say they are happy with the balance between work and family.
