HAD ENOUGH?:

Worker confidence up as hiring rises (Stephanie Armour, 5/23/06, USA TODAY)

Workers reported high confidence in their job security, with more than 80% predicting little or no chance they could lose their jobs in the coming year, according to a May survey of 1,000 full-time employees by Philadelphia-based Right Management.

That's a big jump from six months ago, when nearly a quarter of employees said they might leave their jobs.

"We're seeing a slow, steady (increase) in confidence," says Eileen Javers, a global leader with Right Management. "Right after Katrina, people were worried about jobs and what the economy was doing."


No one goes to the polls and votes his concern for his neighbor's job.

The media can't get away with the same old joke, who do you believe me or your lying eyes forever. Even the least politically inclined working stiff must be tired of their calamity du jour style of reporting and stopped paying attention to it.
