Stress and working overtime contribute to 2.8 million workers’ deaths per year


Your job may be killing you- literally.

A new report from the United Nations says stress from work, excessive hours, and occupational disease are responsible for nearly 2.8-million deaths every year.

Another 374 million people are either injured on the job or get sick because of their jobs.

The burden was particularly high for female workers.

Often the primary caregivers for families, female workers have little time to rest or exercise and that can contribute to cardiovascular disease.
