Compared to those in other rich, developed countries, American workers work a lot, have a lot of stress and don’t get much or enough time off.
A survey from National Public Radio asked adults about their jobs, health and workplace stress levels. 43% of workers said their job negatively affects their stress levels, 28% said their job affects their eating habits while 27% said their work stress messes with their sleeping habits. Bottom line is if you have vacation days use them!
The four jobs that most negatively affected workers were:
- Construction/outdoor work
- Factory or manufacturing
