It's no secret that Americans are short on sleep. But there's been disagreement as to why. A new study says here's one big reason: work.
An analysis from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health asked people where they're working, and how much they sleep. The more people work, the less sleep they're likely to get. And some jobs are much less sleep-friendly than others. Sort of saw those coming, even through our bleary eyes.
