WASHINGTON - A new survey says many Americans earning $35,000 a year or less view their jobs as a dead end.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey polled lower-wage workers and employers.

Sixty-seven percent of the workers said they see "a little" or "no opportunity" at their jobs for advancement.

And 44 percent of employers surveyed said it's hard to recruit people with appropriate skills or experiences to do lower-wage jobs.
