4. Americans Are So Tired They're Falling Asleep at Work
Speaking of sleep, it’s funny to joke about sleeping on the job – except it’s not a joke.
This recently released survey found nearly half – 47% of respondents – have fallen asleep on the job at some point during their careers. While most people (51%) wake themselves up, 10% of office sleepers are caught by their bosses and 7% were found sleeping by their clients. More importantly for employers, 25% said they made mistakes due to sleep deprivation, while 47% feel less productive.
