In Brief: Jobs worry adds to stress.

MORE than one in three workers are worried about their jobs because of the economic downturn, with many experiencing increased levels of stress, says a report out today.

A survey of more than 1,000 adults by health firm Bupa showed that more than a quarter were putting in longer hours because of concerns over job security.

One in three of those worried about their job was losing sleep, one in five was depressed, and some were eating more to cope with the stress.
