The Employee Point of View: Opinions of Workers in North Carolina on Election Issues, Retirement, Caregiving, and Job Benefits

This and Related Reports

The majority of workers age 30 and older in North Carolina believe that the country is on the wrong track and say that the most important domestic issues are health care, immigration, and the economy. This October-November 2007 telephone survey gathered opinions on election issues, retirement plans, job benefits, and caregiving responsibilities.

  • More than 70% of respondents said that financial security and health care issues are important to them in making their decisions about whom to vote for in the 2008 election. And over 60% said they have heard too little from the 2008 Presidential candidates about proposals to ensure financial security and improve our health care system.
  • Most would support making earnings over $97,500 subject to Social Security taxes and requiring employers to make automatic payroll deductions for personal Individual Retirement Accounts.
  • The majority of workers are not currently saving enough money for their retirement needs, nor have they calculated how much money they will need to live on when they retire.
  • One in six workers in North Carolina is currently providing care to a family member or friend.

 

AARP commissioned Alan Newman Research, Inc. to conduct a random digit dial telephone survey of the general population in North Carolina age 30 and older who are employed. A total of 800 interviews were conducted between October 19 and November 4, 2007. (33 pages)
