A new NPR/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation survey looks at stress, overwork, and hazards in the workplace. The outcomes, while they do not surprise, certainly strengthen the case for getting workers help for dealing with stress.
The poll seems to point to overwork as a potent form of stress. About a fifth of us work more than 50 hours per week at a primary job (which doesn’t count the many, many people who need a second job just to get by in our economy). Even more shocking: About half of us do not use all or most of our allotted vacation days!
