Traumatized Populations

Link to New Report Based on a Survey of Unemployed Workers:

"A comprehensive national survey conducted among 1,200 Americans nationwide who have
been unemployed and looking for a job in the past 12 months, including 894 who are still jobless, portrays a shaken, traumatized people coping with serious financial and psychological effects from an economic downturn of epic proportion."

Today's Arizona Republic featured an article describing workers who will work more hours, harder, for less pay out of fear for their jobs. It appears that not only the unemployed have been traumatized by the downturn.
