Recent Guardian research suggests that working Americans are facing an ongoing struggle with money. Many are concerned about having enough to cover household expenses, pay debts, and save for retirement. Chances are, you’re experiencing this as well.
Your overall wellness could be affected.

Look for help from your employer
