In the crush of press releases, this one jumped out in my inbox Wednesday since it seemed to be fresh from the Onion.
But it’s no joke. Apparently it’s news to someone: “Three-Quarters of Americans Stressed By Something At Work.”
Well then. What about the other one-quarter who are stress-free?
The report from a research group and a for-profit college goes on to say that money woes are the largest source of stress, that women are more stressed about pay than men, that last year only 21 percent were stress-free on the job and that working in a career that’s not of your choosing can be stressful.
Oh, and Everest College can help with all this, through its vocational programs.
Here’s the question: What’s so bad about stress at work? The great baseball manager Sparky Anderson was asked before a Detroit Tigers World Series game whether his players were feeling pressure.
“With what we’re paying them, they damn well better be feeling the pressure!”
Of course, the rest of us who don’t make Major League Baseball salaries fell pressure too, and stress as well. Ask the 160,000 out-of-work Connecticut residents what they think.
Or take this advice from this week’s Onion: “Study: Pretending Everything’s Okay Works.”
