Worrying About Job May Be Linked To Depression, Anxiety.

Time (7/19, Futrelle) reports in “Moneyland” that “a new study of workers in the state of Michigan…found that those who were worried about their jobs were significantly more likely to develop depression or suffer anxiety attacks or both.” A previous study “by the same lead researcher, sociologist Sarah Burgard of the University of Michigan, found that employees worried about their jobs were more likely to suffer from depression and poor health than those who lost their jobs and got a new one.” Meanwhile, “research by Stuart Whitaker, an occupational-health expert at the University of Cumbria in England, also suggests that worrying about being fired may be worse than being fired.”
