Survey indicates worker dissatisfaction
Anxious American Worker, a recent survey of 1,000 randomly selected U.S. residents conducted by New Brunswick, N.J.-based Rutgers University's John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, indicates many U.S. workers are concerned about losing their jobs and worried about their financial outlook.
According to the survey, more than one-third of U.S. residents report having financial trouble. One of every three workers surveyed is concerned about personal job security, and 30 percent of those surveyed report they have more temporary credit card debt than they have in permanent retirement savings. Additionally, 50 percent of those surveyed say they are working the number of hours they want to work.
In addition, the survey indicates 25 percent of U.S. workers are dissatisfied with their health care benefits, and slightly fewer are dissatisfied with their education levels. Fifty percent of the workers surveyed believe they need more education or training to achieve their career goals.
