People like to complain that their stressful jobs are killing them. A recently released study from Harvard and Stanford found that may be the case, The Washington Post reported.
The study shows that some workers lost six months to as much as three years of life, due to their demanding jobs. Numerous factors, including race, gender, educational levels, wealth and where in the U.S. people reside, affect life expectancies, the study found.
Notably, people with less education are more likely to have tough working conditions that take a toll on on their longevity. As the Post reports:
Unsurprisingly, a lack of a health insurance also contributed heavily to workers with higher mortality rates. The study also found that, in general, blacks and Hispanics lost more years than whites due to working conditions.
