Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'll post my comment again here, I think it's worth a diary of its own. If this study is conclusive, then this will herald the decline of the neo-liberals. Being neo-liberal will require a cigarette pack health warning.


The University of Michigan publishes results of a study on job insecurity and physical health. According to it:

"feeling insecure about your job takes a toll on physical and mental health --whether you actually lose your job or not."


Another excerpt:

"In fact, the health effects of job insecurity are at least as great as the health effects of a serious or life-threatening illness."

So ... down with the CPE, period (it will aggravate the Social Security deficit!!!)
