Most See Job Opportunity, More Pay in Current Economy

Most Americans remain confident about their ability to get a job and get ahead in the current economy. Most working adults expect a raise, too.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that a new high of 69% of American Adults think it is possible for anyone who really wants to work to find a job. Just 20% disagree. This compares to 68% and 24% respectively a year ago. Eleven percent (11%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
