THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
A scorecard released by Rutgers University for Labor Day reported that U.S. workers are in worse shape than they’ve been in years. The scorecard said more than 10 percent of Americans are having trouble finding jobs, are underemployed or have even stopped looking for work. Although the report shows causes for concern, the author noted that there were some bright spots, including signs that a growing percentage of Americans are completely satisfied with their jobs as employers offer more employee support programs.
How satisified are you with your own job?
