Worker Worry Does not Include Job Loss

August 26, 2008 ( - According to Adecco USA's latest Workplace Insights survey, 81% of American workers are currently worried about something when it comes to their job.

However, despite the economic situation and recent increases in the unemployment rate, job loss does not seem to be a top concern. Only a small number of workers (25%) claim to currently be saving for unemployment, and the majority (58%) having no intention to start putting money aside for potential job loss, Adecco said in a press release.

The number one concern of respondents is high gas prices (25%), beating out a stagnant paycheck (13%), and work-life balance (12%), which were tied for the top spot in Adecco’s 2007 Labor Day survey. The rising cost of health care (9%) and the job market (7%) rounded out the top five job-related concerns.

According to the announcement, while the vast majority of Americans continue to feel appreciated at work (75%), the number has significantly dropped from 2007 when 91% of those polled said they felt they were very/somewhat and appreciated at the office.
