A new poll has revealed that 1 in 4 of working class Americans are worried that their job could be in danger. 


A survey done by OnePoll for CSU Global that involved 2,000 employed adults asked poll takers questions related to how they saw themselves and found that 25% of Americans are worried about losing their jobs in the next year.

The data further revealed that 25% of participants are extremely stressed about where the job market is going and believe they are working in an unstable business or industry (22%). 

The poll also showed that 32% were worried that they are falling behind or lacking the skills they need to succeed in their position. 54% of respondents admitted that their skills felt outdated. 

However, 55% of all participants also said that they enjoy being in the same role that they have been in for so many years.

Nine in 10 participants expressed that it is vital to prioritize learning new skill sets as a professional in order to advance in their career and 74% said that they are interested in making themselves appear more valuable to their employers. 

In terms of importance, 37% said they believed that a college degree is still the most valuable asset to have when entering the workforce, followed by a professional license (35%), or business certificate (34%).

“In an era of rapid technological advancements and a dynamic job market, expanding your skills and knowledge is paramount for remaining competitive and sought after by both current and prospective employers,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, president of CSU Global. “As workforce and industry needs continue to change, it is important that institutions of education and industry leaders work together to provide the tools and training necessary for individuals to excel in their professions and in the workplace.”

Poll takers also claimed that over the past year, they have shown much more initiative in order to grow at work and seem less easily replaceable, such as taking on even more work (42%), learning a new skill (40%), or contributing more than what their specific position requires (30%).

82% of participants also said that if their job offered them a new opportunity within the next six months, they would be interested in pursuing it. 

“Asynchronous online learning provides unparalleled flexibility and affordability for learners who are managing busy personal and professional schedules,” said Dr. Takeda-Tinker. “With high-quality online education, individuals can optimize their career growth while still meeting their family, workplace, and community commitments.

“Not all programs are created equal, however, so it is important to seek a program from an accredited institution with courses taught by credentialed and experienced faculty instructors, that also has fully online academic and career support resources to facilitate learner success.” 

Meanwhile, employed Americans still expressed that they are also concerned about the associated extra costs involved with their position (31%), and not having enough time in a workday (27%). 

The survey of 2,000 employed Americans was commissioned by CSU Global between March 20th and March 26th, 2024.
