Thirty-eight percent (38%) of working Americans today regularly see customers in person.
A Ballotpedia survey found that 64% of those workers are generally comfortable with the safety protocols that have been established during the pandemic. Thirty percent (30%) are nervous about seeing customers and/or co-workers in person while 5% are not sure.
In terms of their own personal situation, 52% of these workers worry more about the economic threat of the coronavirus than the health threat. Forty-two percent (42%) are more concerned about the health issues.
Those numbers are nearly the reverse of attitudes expressed by workers who don’t interact with customers these days. Among those workers, 54% worry more about the health threat while 41% have greater concerns about the economic impact.
Fifty-one percent (51%) of those interacting with customers believe the lockdowns have done more harm than good. Just 33% of other workers share that view.
The national survey of 1,026 working Americans was conducted by Scott Rasmussen. Additional data from the survey will be released in the near future.
