An interesting study from The Heldrich Center Workforce Advisor

Five years into the devastating Great Recession and its aftershocks, millions of Americans are still badly and perhaps permanently damaged financially and deeply pessimistic about near- and long-term prospects for the U.S. economy, according to a new nationwide survey from the Heldrich Center.

Six in ten Americans believe that the nation’s economy has undergone a permanent change. More than half say that the economy will take at least six years to fully recover from the Great Recession, with 29% saying the economy will never fully recover. Only one in five are confident that job and career opportunities will be better for the next generation of American workers.
