Stress is everywhere. The majority of Americans are stressed by the current political turmoil even more so than finances and work, according to a new report. However, this doesn't mean that they still aren't super stressed out by work. Even though we have cool offices with kegs and yoga rooms and can bring our dogs to work, the stress is still very apparent.

A new report from the Health and Safety Executive conducted in the UK during a three-year period from 2014 to 2017 looked into the specific effects of work stress on age and gender groups.

Women are usually more stressed than their male counterparts and it is specifically women in that 35 to 44 age group that really feel the weight of their jobs. There has also been a general increase since a few years ago in work-related stress, depression, and anxiety cases in this group of 100,000 workers that were surveyed. Stress and anxiety manifest into half of the total amount of sick days taken. Here are the jobs that are the stressiest.
