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:
The researchers also said about 62 percent of bosses felt they got paid fairly for what they do, compared with 54 percent of workers. Only 12 percent of bosses said they were looking for a new job, versus 23 percent of workers.
The researchers noted that the differences may be partly attributable to age, since their research showed the average age of top managers was higher than that of nonmanagers. That likely means they are further along in their professional and personal lives.

They also appear to have more money. The researchers found, not surprisingly, that the bosses were more likely than workers to report household incomes topping $75,000 a year.
Still, there are downsides to being the one in charge. The Pew study found that respondents who were not already the top manager were about equally divided on whether or not they wanted to be the boss.
