Study: Long-Term Unemployment Linked to Binge Drinking in Women
A new study, to published in the November issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, says that frequent binging can present problems for unemployed women searching for jobs, reports Mother Nature Network.
The research was performed by the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, which studied more than 13,000 Swedish people aged 20 to 59.
Mona C. Backhans, one of the study’s co-authors, said "While unemployed, problem drinking may have an impact on your search activity. Employers are also likely to not choose people who lack references from a former employer, who have extensive absence records from their previous employment, or frequent job changes/periods of unemployment."
