Hmm .. may be some job related unhappiness is due to fixed or variable compensation for time and effort spent by us. For variable compensation, we work more and get paid more so there is sense of fairness and achievement. Want more! Work more! So simple! But for fixed compensation; there may be a threshold or tolerant level or some benchmark against our peers exists somewhere in our mind . When this threshold or tolerant level or benchmark has been persistently crossed; we may become unhappy! Hmm .. somehow Uncle8888 came to realize this thinking. :-) Fixed or variable compensation may affect our mind on fairness on time and effort spent. Song or bo song!
