Employees Expect Less Layoffs, More Pay In Months Ahead


In a pleasant sign that things are improving ever so slightly in the job market, more than a third of employees actually expect to get a pay raise in the next year, and a majority of those working feel confident they won't be laid off in the next six months.

The sentiments could be an indicator that things are picking up for companies, and in turn, employees are starting to feel more comfortable in their cubicles. The constant worry of "here today, gone tomorrow" might be starting to subside as companies have trimmed work forces to the bone and begin to turn profits again.
