Insecure work bad for health

2nd January 2007

Men who work in temporary or fixed-term jobs are more likely to get sick than those in secure work, a European study has found.

According to the health statistics of Spanish and German male workers, studied by a researcher at the University of Manchester, getting a permanent job is good for your health, but insecure employment can lead to a general deterioration in general health indicators.

Additional stress might be caused by the low-paid, low-status nature of some temporary work.

Vanessa Gash warned that the effects were likely to be felt in any country where short-term employment practices were on the rise.
