From AEI:

  • Thirty-one percent of Americans report that they worry about their wages being reduced. Forty-three percent worry about their benefits being cut. Both responses remain high since the financial crisis.
  • Fifteen percent say that they’ve been laid off or lost a job in the past year, and 67 percent say that jobs      are difficult to find where they live.
  • Fifty-four percent think the US economy is still in a recession. Only 2 percent think the job situation has fully recovered from 2008.
