Poll: American workers express anxiety about their ability to find a new job, while one-third say they don’t make enough money to make ends meet. Almost two-thirds of workers feel it is a bad time to find a quality job — matching the lack of confidence of workers last seen during the 2001 recession — according to a study released by the Rutgers University’s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development. The survey also found that one-third of workers say they often do not have enough money to make ends meet, while another one-third reported that the amount they owe on their credit cards exceeds their retirement savings. Only half of the 1,000 respondents said they are working the number of weekly hours they want to work. The study also found that about one-quarter of workers are dissatisfied with their health benefits. The full report can be found here.
