If you are like a growing number of Americans you might think your job is killing you and you could be right.

An economic slump and a culture of downsizing has caused near record levels of stress for American workers which can cause any number of other problems.

Seems no one is immune-- 19 Action News downsized in 2008. Three years later the Cuyahoga County Administration did the same thing.

At both places the employees left behind were expected to do more with less.

It's a well known fact that high levels of stress impact health.

One researcher, apparently not in touch with many work environments recommended taking three breaks during an eight hour shift to reduce stress but many employees say breaks are simply not possible.
