American workers are worried about a possible recession, with many of them living paycheck to paycheck, a new survey finds. The study was released by Wonolo, an online job marketplace. The report, entitled “The State of Financial Health of Today’s Workforce” is based on surveys of 1,000 gig workers and 1,000 corporate workers across the U.S.

It finds that 55% of gig workers and 42% of workers in full-time corporate jobs say they are living paycheck to paycheck, with approximately 3 in 4 of both types of workers worried about their financial health if a recession were to happen next year.

Officials with Wonolo say the findings underline the need to provide more support for gig workers, since even workers with full-time jobs sometimes rely on that type of work to help pay the bills.
