Twenty-five million U.S. adults are invisible in media coverage of the widely reported 4.9% official unemployment rate.

U.S. workers worry more about having their benefits reduced than about being laid off, getting a pay cut or having their hours cut. Fewer worry about each of these possibilities than did so from 2009-2013.

Leaders need to engage millennials right now to seize a well-being opportunity for their organizations.

Americans have major problems with their well-being -- but millennials may help turn the tide.

Lydia Saad, senior editor at Gallup, will lead the Webinar "Analyzing Gallup's Economic Confidence Index".

U.S. workers have become more satisfied with many aspects of their jobs, and are most positive about physical safety, relations with coworkers, flexibility and job security. Workers are least satisfied with stress and health benefits.
