What do you think causes the most stress? The boss or the low pay? In my case it was the commute, though thankfully, having recently moved, I can now walk to the office. We should all be so lucky.
Nearly three in four Americans are stressed at work, according to a recent survey conducted by a market research firm Harris Interactive on behalf of Everest College. The survey, based on the responses of nearly 900 employed American adults, found that low pay was the top reason for job stress for the second consecutive year.
The high share of Americans reporting job stress is likely linked to the recession, as workers are still suffering the financial consequences, including fragile job security and poor financial health.
