24-hour cell and e-mail access bringing women down

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Cell phones and e-mail bind many of us to our jobs at all hours.

But this 24-hour connection may be taking its toll, especially on women.

A Canadian study found women who were contacted frequently outside the workplace by co-workers or clients had higher levels of psychological distress than women who did not get calls or texts at home.

Women tend to feel guilty about responding to work calls and e-mails at home, even when they don't interfere with their family life.
