A June 2015 Wells Fargo Real Economy survey of 3, 533 adults found few Americans have a positive view of the economy.
*Only 22% believe the public education system prepares youth for the workforce. Recent reports seem to confirm employers’ inability to locate skilled workers
*Only 22% believe they will have a financially secure retirement. The Federal Reserve recently published a survey and found 31% of Americans have no retirement savings or pension
*Only 17% believe the U.S. has a strong middle class. Outsourcing of jobs and the decline of unions are seen as factors in the decline.
