A new survey shows that more than two-thirds of American workers believe that “a company should always have a higher profit margin than it actually has.”
The survey of nearly 1,200 U.S. employees conducted by Forrester Research and conducted in August and September found that 67% of workers believe a company should have a profit margin of at least 15% for any given period.
Only 20% believe the company should never have a margin below 10%.
This year, the average margin for American businesses has been about 10%.
This figure is the lowest since the start of the recession in late 2007.
Forresters research also shows that the median earnings for all workers is $20,000 a year.
The median wage is $44,000.
The survey also found that there is a gender gap on this question.
Among workers, men earn $19,000 less than women, while women earn $20.50 more than men.
In the survey, respondents were asked about three factors, such as how often they are asked to work with a team of people, how often their managers are asked for advice, and how much they are paid.
Only 22% of respondents said that their managers always ask for advice on how to improve the company, while only 5% said they ask for it often.
The survey also asked respondents how often managers ask for their opinions on how the company can improve.
Only 29% of those surveyed said they usually ask for such advice.
The pollsters also asked how often respondents were told that a change in management would result in a reduction in the company’s earnings.
About 6% of the workers said they were told they would have to pay more to retain the same people.
A majority of workers said that they would be able to do more to make their company’s performance better by hiring more people.
About 54% of Americans said they would think twice before hiring a person who does not meet their company standards.
About 30% of people said they are very concerned about the effects of automation on the jobs they do.
About 60% of employees who said they do not feel comfortable hiring more than their share of workers say they are more likely to have an interview with an HR professional.
About half of the people surveyed said that most of the company employees who are worried about the impact of automation do not see it as a threat to their jobs.
About 42% of American companies have laid off workers in recent years, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
This has not been true of the rest of the world.
