felt that they would lose their job continued to decrease
in the fourth quarter of 2018 to 10.3 percent from 10.5
percent in the prior quarter, which was also the fourth
consecutive quarter of lower concern about job loss.
Worker perceptions about the likelihood of a raise
increased by 1.1 percentage points for the year. Both
males and females continued to feel more confi dent
about getting a raise, as 35.4 percent of males and
23.6 percent of females anticipated a raise of at least
3 percent at their next review.
In terms of age, study
fi ndings again show in the fourth quarter of 2018 that
as employees get older, more and more feel that what
they make today is what they will make tomorrow.

fourth quarter, but is still up 5.3 points year-over-year.
The likelihood of promotion index declined 1 point from
last quarter, with males feeling a promotion is more
likely than females. Respondents with annual incomes

quarter of 2018, and now stands at 103.3. The decline
in trust as measured by the WCI took place in November
and December of 2018, amidst dramatic stock market
declines. 2018 was a bad year for stocks, suffering from
extreme volatility. December was a particularly dreadful
month: The S&P 500 was down 9 percent and the Dow
was down 8.7 percent-the worst December since 1931.
In one seven-day stretch, the Dow fell by 350 points or
more six times according to CNN. For the year, the S&P
500 fell 6.2 percent, the Dow dropped 5.6 percent, and
the Nasdaq Composite shed 3.9 percent, marking the
worst annual performance for all three since 2008.
This decline had to have a negative impact in worker
confi dence, particularly in the fourth quarter of 2018.
But this decrease experienced at the end of 2018 may
be short term, and early returns in 2019 support that.
There was no underlying economic factor in the decline
last year, though political unrest and changing U.S.
Congress may have led to uncertainty, which always has
a negative impact on the stock market.
