More Americans living paycheck to paycheck

"The number of Americans living paycheck to paycheck is on the rise, with 61 percent reporting they are just eking by."

"That’s up from 49 percent last year and 43 percent in 2007, according to a new nationwide survey by CareerBuilder."

"And, it’s not just minimum wage workers who are struggling. The survey also found that 30 percent of workers with salaries of $100,000 or more report that they, too, live paycheck to paycheck, up from 21 percent in 2008."
