Work pressure heats up in the summer

The pressure of work goes up in the summer rather than lessens, according to more than half of the 76,700 people questioned in an ING poll.

Some 2.5 million people will be away at the height of the summer holiday, ING said.
In some sectors, such as construction, work stops for the traditional bouwvak or building workers’ holiday. But only 25% of those questioned said they have less to do at work because of the holiday.
