Americans say they are stressed out at work

The unemployment rate may be falling, but stress levels appear to be on the rise. More than 8 in 10 employed Americans said they are stressed out on the job due to issues like too much work and too little money. The survey was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Everest College.

A phone survey of more than 1,000 employed adults found that 83 percent are stressed by at least one thing at work. That’s a jump of 10 percentage points compared with 2012. Low pay shared the top spot with unreasonable workload. Other factors mentioned were annoying coworkers, commuting, and poor work-life balance.

Individuals whose annual income is less than $35,000 were more likely than those in the top income groups to point to low pay as a source of stress. The highest earners were twice as likely as those in the lowest income bracket to say that nothing about their job stresses them out.

John Swartz of Everest College says anxiety is “rooted into our working lives.” Everest College offers diploma and degree programs for a variety of careers.
