As unemployment rises, U.S. workers are fretting over the prospects of having to find a new job in the current labor market, according to the Employment Law Alliance.

Of 1,159 workers recently surveyed, about a third said they were worried about losing their jobs as a result of the economic downturn, the San Francisco trade group reported. At the same, just over half said they were concerned about their chances of finding another job.

Stephen Hirschfeld, the group's CEO, said uncertainties created by the upcoming presidential elections weren't helping.

"These highly personal issues -- much more than the prospect of tackling immigration and making it easier for unions to organize -- are trending as the paramount hot-button election issue," Hirschfeld said in a statement. "Perhaps the real battleground in this election is every American workplace," he added.
