Las Vegas, NV, August 20, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A new study shows the over-whelming majority of Americans lack the tough work ethic that most wealthy people feel they must have to get rich. Less than three in 10 surveyed for the study said they are willing to work as many hours as it takes to become wealthy, much less clear up credit problems millions of Americans have.
The study was conducted by researchers for Credit Card Camp.com which provides consumers information to maintain good credit, re-establish credit and obtain credit cards for all levels of credit. Only 29% of the 1,107 respondents said they were willing to do “whatever it takes” to get wealthy. Almost half or 43% said they were willing to work just up to 60 hours a week to become wealthy.
The study shows that the majority are unwilling to work hard enough to get wealthy by most standards, and demonstrates that most Americans lack the determination to put in the long hours and hard work that most millionaires put into their businesses.
Millions of Americans are disillusioned with obtaining the American Dream after the financial crisis took a major toll on the U.S. A strong work ethic following World War II lasted for decades, especially among younger workers, many of whom opt to work fewer hours than make more money to have more “free time.”
