Nearly seven in 10 people making more than $200,000 a year reported feeling stressed at work, according to LinkedIn Learning.
Top earners are getting maxed out.
Making more money can mean more stress, according to a LinkedIn Learning study released Tuesday. Nearly seven in 10 (68%) people making more than $200,000 a year reported feeling stressed at work, compared to less than half (47%) of those making $35,000 to $50,000, and just 38% of those earning between $50,000 and $75,000.
High-earning employees weren’t even the most satisfied with work, according to the survey of almost 1,000 U.S. LinkedIn members who self-identified as employed: Folks making between $50,000 and $75,000 a year reported the greatest job satisfaction (81%); in contrast, 74% of people making more than $250,000 said the same. Seventy-nine percent of people making between $200,000 and $250,000 said they were satisfied with their jobs.
