Taipei, August 4 (CNA) With Father’s Day in Taiwan approaching, it may be a good idea for working fathers to look to de-stress. 1111 Job Bank, one of Taiwan’s leading human resource agencies, said Tuesday that according to a recent survey, up to 88% of working fathers are enormously stressed by job-related worries.
Vice President Daniel Lee (李大華) of 1111 Job Bank said that a particular demographic that stands out is young fathers born in the 1990s. Commonly paid well below the average market salary, these new fathers tend to endure the greatest amount of financial pressure.
According to further survey data, the most prevalent sources of stress mainly stem from “financial burdens at home” (76.3 percent), “parenting problems” (39.8 percent) and a “lack of pay raises” (38.3 percent). [FULL STORY]
