A new report from the RAND Corporation
has examined the physical and emotional impact of the modern U.S. workplace
. It found that while some workers have to deal with physical exertion, many jobs also have a serious emotional impact
Bullying, violence and harassment are all serious problems in American working environments, though thankfully, only a minority of workers have had the misfortune to experience them. Over the past month, 13 percent of men and 12 percent of women had to put up with verbal abuse at work. Over the last 12 months, 9.6 percent of men and 11 percent of women experienced bullying or harassment. Perhaps unsurprisingly, women are far more likely to endure unwanted sexual attention than men. According to RAND, just under 5 percent of U.S. woman experienced some form of unwanted sexual attention in the workplace over the past month.
