The Career Epidemic: You Don't Have to Choose Between Your Job and Your Health

The Career Epidemic: You Don't Have to Choose Between Your Job and Your Health



"More dramatic is the research suggesting that job loss takes 1-1.5 years off of your life. Two prominent economists, Daniel Sullivan of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Till von Wachter of Columbia University, claim,
"We were convincingly able to show that if you lose your job, you die
earlier." This is especially relevant data given a Gallup Poll that says
1 out of 5 employed Americans think they will lose their job in the
next 12 months. If you do the math, that means about 26 million
Americans will die at least a year earlier than they would have, had
they kept their jobs."


"Even the lucky among us, who have jobs but worry about them
constantly, are at risk. Sociologist, Sarah Burgard, of the University
of Michigan has found
that the consistent, nagging concern about losing one's job is even
more harmful to people's health than job loss itself. Under the stress
of job uncertainty, people smoke more, drink more and don't sleep as
much. Ultimately, they are more likely to develop stress-related health
conditions such as hypertension or diabetes."
"Each year, hypertension kills 40,000
Americans, and high-blood-pressure-related illness claims an additional
200,000 lives. (Not to mention that having hypertension makes you 7
times more likely to have a stroke and 6 times more likely to have
congestive heart failure.) According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million Americans have diabetes and 5800 of them die from the disease each week."
