DENVER -- Sports, Lower Downtown, dining , outdoor activities. Those are just a few factors that make Denver a top-ranked place to live, according to Forbes Magazine.

But according to a recently released study by Indeed Hiring Lab, the job happiness index of 2016 shows Denver not third, not second, but first as the U.S. city with the lowest level of job satisfaction.

According to the survey, Denver has the highest concentration of disgruntled workers.  Even more than Detroit.

Metropolitan State University of Denver professor Madison Holloway believes it might be a situation of workers wanting too much, too soon.

“I would imagine it being younger people who are not getting where they want to go as fast as they would like to get there. That, I believe, could happen because we’re all impatient," Holloway said.

The balance among life, work and job security were top reasons cited by the study.

“The job market here has been fluctuating, but that’s no more than it has been in the last 10, 20 years,” Holloway said.

So if you don’t like your job, take this sage advice from a passerby on the 16th Street Mall in Denver.

"If you don’t like your job, then go look for another one.”
