Glassdoor’s survey found 15 percent of workers feared being laid off in the next six months, a 7 percentage point drop since the previous quarter and a a new low since Q408. The results are based on the responses from 891 full and/or part-time employees.
The survey also found that male workers (18 percent) are more concerned than female workers (11 percent) of being laid off. Apparently, age also makes a difference. Male workers ages 34 to 44 years old (24 percent) are three times as concerned compared to women in the same age range (8 percent).
