Keywords: Job insecurity, Michigan survey
Abstract: This paper uses individual responses from the Michigan SRC
survey of consumer attitudes to examine worker anxiety. It
identifies "anxious" households (those that express some
concern about job security) and analyzes some factors
that might be driving this angst. It found that a little
more than a quarter of households revealed concerns about
job security. Also, the results suggest that less-educated
households (those lacking a high-school diploma) were
significantly more likely to be concerned about job loss
than were black or Asian households.
