Ask A Working Woman Survey 2010: Working America and AFL-CIO

 Working America and the AFL-CIO recently launched the 2010 Ask a Working Woman survey. A similar survey has been done every 2 years, and in 2008, the survey illicited 12,000 responses - a number Working America and AFL-CIO would like to match this year.

This year's questions focus on how the recession is impacting women and their various familial situations and how they're thinking about the future considering the current state of the economy.  Hearing from thousands of women about how they're living through this economy is clearly an important story to tell, considering the inevitable gap between what elected officials/pundits and working people say matters.
