Americans want employers to speak up on economy, survey finds

NEW YORK: More than half of working Americans said their employers have not addressed their concerns about the impact of the current economic turmoil, according to a new survey by Weber Shandwick. Of the 514 employed Americans surveyed, 70% expected the current economic situation to have a negative impact on the companies they work for, while 62% of those said their companies would have trouble meeting its goals. However, 54% said they have not heard from company leaders about the impact of the financial turmoil. Despite the lack of discussion from the top, 74% said they have heard their colleagues discussing it. The survey was conducted by KRC Research between October 3 and October 6 with a margin of error of +/- 4.4% at the 95% confidence level.
