Poll: Do you think the jobs crisis has reached its peak?

A Eurobarometer survey says just over half of us think the worst is yet to come. Really?

AN INDEPTH SNAPSHOT of how Ireland – and other EU states – feel about the economic situation in our countries has been taken in the latest Eurobarometer survey.

There were several interesting findings but one rather depressing one shows that just over half of Irish people (53 per cent) believe the worst is yet to come in the jobs crisis. Only 38 per cent of us believe that the effect the economic crisis has on jobs has reached its peak.

What do you think? Do you expect that jobs losses are at the worst they can get now?

Poll Results:

No, I think it's going to get worse (1062)
I really don't know (657)
Yes, I think we've hit the peak of losses (361)
