If there was any question about how employees feel about their financial situation, a recent survey suggests their concerns are only amplifying.    

Forty-four per cent of Canadian workers said they are satisfied with their financial situation this year, down from 55 per cent two years ago. And 53 per cent are worried about their future financial state, compared to 46 per cent two years ago, found the survey of 1,349 people by Willis Towers Watson.

The survey also found almost one-third of workers (30 per cent) believe their financial concerns are negatively affecting their lives, compared to 18 per cent two years ago.
