This article explores the importance of money to clients of financial planners in the U.S. A work and career poll of workers aged 45 to 74 conducted by the American Association of Retired Persons found that what workers most wanted on the job was a friendly work environment and a chance to use their skills and talents. The least they care about was a chance to earn money and a 401(k) retirement plan. A survey by Roper ASW found that, given the choice, workers choose more working hours and more money over more free time by 56 percent to 35 percent. The results were similar in 30 other countries. The survey reflects not only the poor economic conditions and consumer nervousness, but also income levels. Roper found that those who had the most money wanted more time, while those who had the least money wanted the opposite.
