According to a new study, 42 percent of American workers have changed jobs to escape the pressure-cooker, while another 35 percent have thought about it. Capture d’écran 2014-04-16 à 09.01.21

The study, by job-search site Monster, surveyed 6,700 people in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, India, the Netherlands and Canada. It turns out the U.S. is only the third-most stressful country when it comes employment. The top spot went to France, where stress has caused 89 percent of workers to either change jobs or consider it. Second place is the U.K. with 76 percent.

Of course, the feeling of stress is subjective, with national, cultural and other factors affecting how workers will register and deal with professional pressures. But there are commonalities. Here in the U.S., according to Monster, the top workplace stressors are supervisor relationships (40 percent); amount of work (39 percent); work-life balance (34 percent); coworker relationships (31 percent); and deadlines (25 percent).
