Only one in 10 workers in the UK say the improving economy there is making them feel positive about their job security, according to a new report.
A survey of 2,600 adults by Legal & General also showed that almost two out of five felt negatively about how secure they were in work.
Older workers were most pessimistic, while almost one in five of those questioned were worried about how they will maintain their standard of living in the coming months.
Mark Holweger, director at Legal & General’s general insurance business said: “It’s interesting to see that despite the reports of green shoots in our national economy, and significantly lower unemployment rates in recent months, this hasn’t quite filtered through into how many UK workers feel about their own job.
“With only one in 10 of workers making this link positively, it’s clear that it will take time for economic improvements to result directly in increased confidence.”
