You know how sometimes you hear something that’s so ‘you’ that you end up smiling and nodding in agreement almost the whole way through it? Well, that happened to me recently while going through the audiobook The 4 Laws of Financial Prosperity: Get Control Of Your Money Now!
It goes on to say how a “psychologically demanding workplace, combined with employees not having much control over what they do minute to minute, day to day” is contributing to the suicide crisis around the country.The average Australian full-time worker works over 43 hours a week: one of the highest in the developed world. We also get less annual leave than in many European countries, such as Denmark and Norway.
1 in 3 Australians are only two pay packets away from financial distress (Digital Finance Analytics) and 25% say that they stress about their finances more than 2 hours every week (Map My Plan Employee Survey). You are absolutely not alone if you feel like money is just a constant stress.
