AMSTERDAM – More than 50 percent of Dutch people are working below their ability. One third is bothered by this and is therefore seeking other employment. One quarter is looking for another job because they want a better salary.

This emerged from a study by the NationaleVacaturebank.nl (national databank of job vacancies) published on Friday. The organisation surveyed 509 people. Only 32.5 percent of those interviewed said they were happy with their work.

This is striking since a study by ZebraZone published yesterday reported that a far higher percentage of Dutch go to work with pleasure.
