A new poll on this Labor Day Weekend shows most Americans are satisfied with their jobs.

According to a CBS News Poll, 9 in 10 Americans are at least somewhat satisfied with their current job. Workers age 50 and older are more likely than those under 50 to be very satisfied. People earning $100,000 a year are more satisfied than those who make less.

Yet salary isn't the most important factor to some. More than half say it's the people they work with. Only 26% say salary comes first and 13% say schedule and vacation time are the most important factors.
