The prevalence of stress in the workplace has escalated in the past years. In this study, responses from the 2009 California Health Information Survey (CHIS) for adults was analyzed to determine whether the influence of emotions to work performance is associated with number of hours worked and income. The study revealed that working longer hours and higher income affect a person's emotions sometimes. The data suggests that individuals that work more hours are more likely to experience stress, which results into poor job performance. This study also suggests that stress is associated with earnings when an increase in earnings is a result of more responsibilities, unmanageable workload, and unfair compensation. Stress poses a negative impact on a person's well-being, therefore, it is important that proper stress management and work interventions are used to reduce the prevalence of stress in the workplace.
