American Workers Are at a Breaking Point

The economy is supposed to be in recovery mode, but you wouldn't know it by the grunts and groans coming from the next cubicle.

A whopping 83 percent of American workers said they are stressed out by at least one thing at work, up sharply from 73 percent in 2012, according to a survey by Harris Interactive for Everest College.

"When you look at all the other economic indicators, there have definitely been some positive signs," said John Swartz, regional director of career services at Everest College. But relief of workplace stress isn't one of them.

"More companies are hiring, but workers are still weary and stressed out from years of a troubled economy that has brought about longer hours, layoffs and budget cuts," Swartz said.

I know I'm in the 83% and it's only been getting worse at my job. Who else feels this way?

Open borders, outsourcing and a flood of H1Bs will tend to do that.

Oh, and today is another of those illegal Immigrant Rally Day. Fun!

I was in the 83% at my last job and then I was laid off. Now I cannot find a job to save my life. I'm at a breaking point alright.
