The throughline for our election coverage this year, of which the Marketplace-Edison Research Poll is the leading edge, is that the big economic reports are all well and good, but what really matters is how people feel about their own economies and how they’re getting by. 

So we went out to Albuquerque, New Mexico to ask people about job security. Are they afraid of losing their jobs? How hard or easy would it be to find a new one? Click the above audio player to find out what they said. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
