Bad Job is Worse Than No Job, Reveals Study
A poorly paid, short-term or bad job can affect mental health as badly as being jobless, reveals a recent study in Australia. 7,000 respondents were queried about their jobs. Not surprisingly, the mental health of jobless people was poorer than those who were employed.
But, a bad job is worse than having no job because people working in bad jobs suffered mentally. Bad quality jobs took their impact on mental health in the long run. Unhealthy working conditions affect employees drastically reducing their health score.
The research reveals that demanding jobs and those that give little financial reward or support should be avoided at all costs. Not having a job is thus better than working in a bad job. This interesting study was published in a journal called Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
