The SheSpeaks community is filled with amazing women. Women just like you and I who have their ups and downs and are navigating life, family, work and everything in between!
That's why we are so grateful that so many SheSpeaks members took the opportunity to weigh in our latest Fall Survey in late September. We learned some interesting things from all of you. Below are some interesting insights from the study. Do you agree with these findings? Tell us what you think in the comments below!
I totally agree with all of these statement results.
Completely agree with all of these. Although I'm not as concerned with Covid as last year..it is still relevant and I do think the economy is tanking..my diversified retirement plan shows this along with the rising cost if gas and food.
Floridagal I completely agree with you. I?m in Flroida too and I see things from the same perspective. maybe 2022 won?t be so terrible but what about 2030. That?s the year that everything will change. If you don?t see all the different agendas playing out now? you will surely notice it by the year 2030. and it?s sad that most of it can?t be really changed, even with polls coming out in our favor.
I think it is so sad that people in our own country are at poverty levels and Vets who have served our country are not taken care of by our gov. I t disgusts me how they will take on 2 million people from other countries before looking after their own. Also how we must be vaccinated and wear masks, which I don't think help all that much and they allow infected disease carriers unchecked into this country. Shame on this Administration. Obviously they do not care about Americans
I definitely say the country is going in the right direction. Wages are higher and companies are offering great incentives to make careers there more attractive for workers.
No, I do not agree. This country is headed in the right direction.
Vaccinations have been required for years to enter the United States and for US Citizens to travel abroad. They have also been required at schools in the United States. I believe the requirements for accepting the vaccine must be far more stringent than they are in order to return to normalcy.
like all the answers thank for sharing
It's crazy to see everything put in a graph
Health is definitely my number one concern not only for myself, but for my immediate family members too. Serious surgeries have found their way into our lives and we are in the process of a very long, slow healing process for our family members.
People who say the country is heading in the wrong direction- why? Wages are +$2/hour which people wanted- +wages, -supply +greater demand=+ prices. Yes, inflation up, but that?s one of the reasons that the Rescue plan sent multiple payments, suggesting use what you need, save what you can because coming out of a pandemic is unpredictable. Unemployment is <5%, infrastructure bill has passed to provide clean water, rebuild our roads, bridges, etc. This will also bring more jobs. Also over 200 million vaccine doses have been administered, which will help us end the pandemic. The Dow is up over 5000 points-while the stock market is not a measure of the economy-people?s 401ks, if they are lucky enough to have them, are way up. Many more people are covered by healthcare insurance than before. Sadly, there are people that will criticize every advancement that is made. Progress is slow. Be positive and be kind. Look out for your neighbor.
I 100% totally agree with these findings! May surprise you but I do feel the same!
I can see how HOPEFUL has gone down .. too much political fighting, hatred, jacked up prices, low inventory of stuff, etc.
I live in Florida and I cannot believe all those fleeing here to live in our state. The cost of new homes in our area went up 7 time from 01/2021 to 07/ 2021. Only the elite can afford to build and the builders cannot even promise what the end price will be. Existing homes get 8 to 10 bids over invoice and are bought sight unseen in one day. Some rents have gone up $500 to $900 per month so renters are scrambling to try to find new places to live. You can blame this on supply channels or you can open your eyes and figure out that something more is amiss in this countryInflation and gas prices are excessive and food prices have outpaced any "bump" in salary. In Tampa the housing has gone up 40%. Did you get a pay increase of 40% this year? How can our children afford this? Yes, I am pessimistic. But I am a realist and everyone I speak to here is noticing this. I think 2022 will be some welcome changes because enough Americans will go to the polls to alleviate this damage.
