Description

A flexible income and fixed expenses : Economic stress among on call-employees The aim of the study was to investigate the economic situation of temporary employees. The study group consisted of 778 on call employees.The response rate was 56 percent. Twenty percent had experience from being treated in different economic affairs.

Over 50 percent of them answered that the form of employment was an impediment to get a loan and above 40 percent that it was an impediment to get a lease. The study group is strongly polarized as regards to economical matters. There is a clear connection between poverty and health. Those who often worried about economy and were poor had lower psychological well-being (GHQ-12), more complaints from stomach, back and neck, more headache, and were more tired and listless.

Purpose:

To investigate the economic situation of temporary employees.
