The Link between Financial Difficulties and Job Satisfaction
Financially stressed employees often bring their concerns into the workplace, according to a recent study at the University of Maryland.
The study found that employees with higher levels of financial stress were more likely to be dissatisfied with their pay and more prone to waste time at and be absent from work.
A Management-Issues.com story on studies by the business research organization Conference Board indicates fewer than half of all workers are satisfied with their jobs to begin with, marking a decrease from the 6 out of 10 people who said they were happy with their jobs 20 years ago (view more job satisfaction statistics).
So why are workers not as happy at their jobs nowadays? As reported by Management-Issues.com, the Conference Board research found that dissatisfaction with money—specifically bonus plans and promotion policies—was a major source of unhappiness at work.
Filing Bankruptcy May Restore Your Finances and Career
If your financial difficulties have affected your overall satisfaction at work, now's the time to take control of the situation.
It may surprise you to learn that the U.S. Bankruptcy Code may provide the key to liberating changes in your financial life—and possibly even your career—through one of two protections: Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy has traditionally helped others with massive credit card debt, medical bills and other unsecured debts get a clean slate through a discharge. Chapter 13 bankruptcy has most often been used to stop foreclosure and repossession through a repayment plan, allowing people to catch up on past-due payments over time.
Whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy best applies to your situation, you should know that in most cases an automatic stay takes effect when you file for bankruptcy, essentially stopping creditors from garnishing wages, from harassing you on the telephone or from proceeding with any other collection actions.
