Americans Want Next President to Focus More on Saving U.S. Jobs and Healthcare; Less on Immigration Reform
Date:4/16/2008

PHILADELPHIA, April 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Americans overwhelmingly want their next President to focus more on improving their standard of living, providing universal healthcare, and stemming the outsourcing of jobs overseas than making it easier for immigrants to live and work in the U.S., according to the latest "America At Work" national opinion survey by the non-partisan Employment Law Alliance (ELA).

A summary of the results, posted in detail at http://www.employmentlawalliance.com, reveals:

-- 76% of Americans are also concerned - but not at the same intensity level - with having the next President work toward increasing workplace safety regulation, 70% support focusing on expanding family leave rules and 69% think beefing up enforcement of workplace discrimination laws should be a priority.

-- In sharp contrast, less than half said they are concerned that their next President focus on immigra
