Rutgers poll: Most see improved economy, but say rich benefit at workers expense

September 3, 2018

A national survey by the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University finds that a majority of Americans believe the economy is improving, but they’re worried about future job prospects.

Even though the unemployment rate is low, 57 percent of those surveyed consider the federal government’s handling of the job situation fair or poor, said Carl Van Horn, center director.

And seven in 10 Americans are worried that the country is being run for the benefit of the rich rather than for workers.
