73% Of Americans Stressed Out At Work
Nearly three-fourths (73 percent) of American workers are stressed out by at least one thing at work, according to Everest College’s 2012 Work Stress Survey.
The biggest stresser? Not getting paid enough. Some 11 percent of those surveyed cited pay as their biggest source of stress, followed by annoying co-workers (10 percent), commuting (9 percent), unreasonable workload (9 percent), and working in a job that isn’t their chosen career (8 percent).
Women are definitely more stressed about money than men: 14 percent of women in the work-stress survey cited pay as their top stressor, compared to 8 percent of the men. However — the number of people who cited fear of being fired or laid off as a top source of stress dropped to 4 percent in this year’s survey from 9 percent last year.
