“Overworked employees are fed up: a survey finds 8 out of 10 Americans want a new job.” - CNN Money
“Study: U.S. Leads In Mental Illness, Lags in Treatment”
Granted, this article is dated Dec 30, 2003, but we’re obviously still in the recession period that started in Nov. 2000. I’m sure the survey would be similar, if not worse at this point given the hurricanes and legions of companies bellying up right now (Refco, GM) or the continued downsizing.
I think the American worker is streched very, very thin at this point. So, I was interested in what people believe to be the cause.
I personally believe America is in a great “race to the bottom” fueled by both the US consumer’s lack of economic foresight and insatiable demand for lower priced goods and services, and also by the current US political climate which seems to foster an atmosphere of corporate protectionism. I’d like to hear other people’s opinions.
