Working paycheque to paycheque, you are not alone, according to a new survey released today by the Canadian Payroll Association.
In Saskatchewan the grim conclusion is confirmed.
Here are some of the provincial results:
- In Saskatchewan, 61 per cent of people surveyed believe they will need more than $1 million in savings to retire.
- 43 per cent of people say they're living paycheque to paycheque.

- 38 per cent of working people here report feeling overwhelmed by their debt.
- In an emergency, 17 per cent of people in Saskatchewan say they could not come up with $2,000.
