Burgard and Seelye find job insecurity linked to psychological distress among workers in later years
"Persistence of job insecurity linked to greater psychological distress in later life" - News Medical Life Sciences. 12/7/2016.
In a recently published study, Sarah Burgard and Sarah Seelye find that persistent job insecurity - a reality for many Americans - can lead to psychological distress in later life. Using 25 years of data, they found those most vulnerable to job insecurity are minorities, workers without a high school diploma, and older workers. But Burgard says that "those who face the worst burden [of distress] are those who have faced uncertainty the longest."
