    Is your job making you sick? - Canadian HR Reporter
    The study, to which Carles Muntaner of Toronto's Centre for Addiction and Mental Health contributed, found workers with precarious employment, such as temporary or part-time work with low wages and no benefits, had poorer physical and mental health when compared to workers in full-time jobs with good pay and benefits.

    Closing the Gap in a Generation: Health Equity Through Action on the Social Determinants of Health also found stress at work is associated with a 50-per-cent increased risk of heart disease. Jobs with high demands, low control and where employees aren't adequately rewarded for their efforts also increase the risk for mental and physical health problems including major depression, anxiety disorders and substance abuse.
