Nearly 3/4 of Americans Living Paycheck to Paycheck.
I'm not really sure why anyone would be surprised by this, although it is certainly disappointing that hard working Americans are struggling so much. From our TV partners at KATC TV 3 : Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all. This was according to a survey released by Bankrate.com Monday. Wow.
