Chances are, your boss really is living the good life.
A Pew Research Center report released Thursday found that bosses are more likely than workers to be satisfied with their family life, current job and financial situation.
Top managers are also more likely than nonmanagerial employees to say they are paid fairly for what they do and less likely to be looking for a new job, according to the report.

The results are based on an October survey of about 1,300 people working full- and part-time.
Among the findings:
- Family life: 83 percent of bosses were very satisfied with their family life, compared with 74 percent of workers.
- Current job: 69 percent of top managers said they were happy in their current job, compared with 48 percent of nonmanagers.
- Financial situation: 40 percent of bosses were satisfied with their financial situation, compared with 28 percent of workers.
