A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that a majority of adults nationwide continues to believe that people employed by the government have it easier than those in the private sector and get paid more for it.
Sixty-six percent of American adults believe private sector employees work harder than government workers, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Eight percent say government employees are the harder workers, and 25 percent are undecided.
The survey of 1,000 adults was conducted on April 1-2, by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points with a 95percent level of confidence.
