Sleep Poll Shows Workers Are Too Sleepy To Work

Think a little extra shuteye would improve your job? You’re not alone. The 2005 Sleep in America poll, released Tuesday, indicates about half of American workers believe the same thing, saying that their lack of sleep regularly effects their performance on the job.

The poll, released annually to coincide with Sleep Awareness Week and the switch to Daylight Savings Time, also found that a third of America’s adult workers either missed work or made mistakes at work in the past three months because of a lack of sleep. Additionally, adults in the United States report that they receive, on average, 6.9 hours of sleep each night
