Americans haven’t been this confident about their job security since before the Great Recession began in 2008.
Only 13% of workers answering a Gallup poll say they are very or fairly worried that they will be laid off in the next 12 months. That’s down from 16% who feared losing their jobs at this time last year. The job-loss fear factor reached its all-time high of 21% when Gallup asked the question in 2010.
