Survey: Candidates Neglecting Workplace Issues
More than one-third of U.S. workers say that presidential candidates are not adequately addressing wages, health care, retirement plans, and other workplace issues, according to a recent survey by Harris Interactive.
Out of 752 full or part-time employees surveyed, 23 percent also said they weren't sure candidates were focusing enough of their campaigns on workplace issues.
One in four respondents also said their top managers openly expressed political preferences at work, while 76 percent of employees ages 18 to 24 talked politics at work, compared to just 64 percent of employees 50 or older. Younger employees were also more likely to tell their boss which candidate they supported.-next -
