The newspaper noted that the anxiety is concentrated among low-income workers: 54 percent of workers making $35,000 or less now worry "a lot" about losing their jobs, compared with 37 percent of lower-income workers in 1992. In addition, 85 percent of lower-income workers fear that their families' income will not be enough to meet expenses, up 25 points from a 1971 survey.
The poll of 1,509 adults was conducted Sept. 6-12. It had an overall margin of error of 3 percentage points.
