The nation's labor market continues to make incremental progress and that improvement has boosted optimism among Americans about their jobs and finding new employment, a new survey shows.

In the final three months of 2011, 41 percent of employees said it is "likely" that they would be able to find a job matched to their experience and earnings in the next six months, should they lose their jobs. That's up three points from the third quarter, according to the survey by Glassdoor, an employment research website.
