Survey Says 20% of Workers Face Hostile or Threatening Work Environments

The recent American Working Conditions Survey (AWCS) has found that work is “pretty taxing” for many people. CBS News reports that “nearly one in five workers — a share the study calls ‘disturbingly high’ — say they face a hostile or threatening environment at work, which can include sexual harassment and bullying”. Other key findings show that only 38 percent of survey participants say their jobs offer prospects for advancement, and 50 percent of those polled say they work outside of office hours to meet the demands of their position.
