Ask A Working Woman Survey 2010: Working America and AFL-CIO
Working America and the AFL-CIO recently launched the 2010 Ask a Working Woman survey. A similar survey has been done every 2 years, and in 2008, the survey illicited 12,000 responses - a number Working America and AFL-CIO would like to match this year.
This year's questions focus on how the recession is impacting women and their various familial situations and how they're thinking about the future considering the current state of the economy. Hearing from thousands of women about how they're living through this economy is clearly an important story to tell, considering the inevitable gap between what elected officials/pundits and working people say matters. As Working America's blog, Main Street, states: Working America and the AFL-CIO recently launched the 2010 Ask a Working Woman survey. A similar survey has been done every 2 years, and in 2008, the survey illicited 12,000 responses - a number Working America and AFL-CIO would like to match this year. The pundits talk about the deficit but in poll after poll working people say they care about unemployment and jobs creation; they tell us the recession is over and the economy is improving, but working families are still struggling to keep their homes and find jobs and just generally keep their heads above water.
If you are a working woman, inside or outside of the home, please consider taking this survey here.
