Fear over jobs

Townsville Bulletin - - Investor -

FI­NAN­CIAL se­cu­rity is keep­ing a quar­ter of Aus­tralian work­ers in dead­end jobs, a new sur­vey has found.

Syd­ney-based hu­man re­sources and re­cruit­ment group Ta­lent2 said an on­line sur­vey of 957 peo­ple found 25 per cent did not want to leave their present em­ploy­ment.

This was be­cause of in­creas­ing credit card debt, three in­ter­est rate rises in 2006 and day-to-day liv­ing ex­penses such as petrol prices.
