    Economic Report: Job Loss Bad For Your Health - 05/12/09

    Economic Report:

    "Job loss isn’t only bad for your wallet; it is additionally bad for your physical and mental health. A new study published in Demography magazine found that 54 percent who were unemployed due to an employer shutting down were also likely to report fair or poor health. The likelihood of someone who previously had no health conditions developing new ones rocketed by 83 percent. "

    And on top of that a high percentage of workers with employer provided (or partially Provided) Health Insurance often lose that within 30-60 days of being laid off.

    Come to the march and help get the word out that we have to fix this problem now... not later.
