The John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development has recently released a report titled, "The Anxious American Worker" which addresses the state of American employees. This report not only looks into the satisfaction that workers have with their jobs and with health care, but also who the workers blame and who they believe should fix the current problems facing employees.
The director of the Heldrich Center describes the findings of the report as a decade of un-addressed concerns, and a call for help from American workers.

Perhaps the most shocking portion of the report dealt with debt and retirement. The report found that almost a third of American workers had more credit card debt than funds in their retirement accounts!
