Sleep deprivation caused by job worries

22nd June 2010

A survey of 6,000 people has found that worries about work and finances causes many workers to sleep less than eight hours a night.

Bankers, civil servants and factory workers lost the most sleep, according to the study by hotel chain Travelodge. Civil servants said they slept less than six hours a night. Leigh McCarron, of Travelodge, stated that it was not surprising that staff who could potentially lose their jobs were reporting the worst nights' sleep.
