A new survey for the upcoming Labor Day weekend shows some of the impacts COVID-19 is having on consumer and worker sentiments.

The 400-person survey conducted by financial services firm WalletHub found 77 percent do not trust other Americans to adequately socially distance over the upcoming holiday weekend and another 75 percent say they will not travel for Labor Day.

Labor Day is traditionally one of the big travel holidays of the year marking the end of summer in many parts of the country.

The COVID-19 situation in Arizona has shown improvements with fewer hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

The national survey also found 74 percent support Congress continuing to give extra unemployment benefits to those who lost their jobs during the pandemic. Twenty-six percent oppose extra jobless benefits.

Fifty one percent of those surveyed said they have been working harder since the pandemic hit and 30 percent are worried about their job security.

Another 39 percent of workers believe their bosses have taken advantage of them during the pandemic while 61 percent say they have been treated fairly (49 percent ) or generously (12 percent).

The full survey can be found here.
