Study shows that workers in high-risk jobs save less money

A recent study from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis revealed that workers employed at high-risk jobs have a tendency to save less money despite the likelihood of sustaining a work-related injury.

A possible reason for this, according to the authors of the study, is that employees of high-risk jobs are more likely to focus on short term priorities rather than long term planning.

The authors said 21% of workers with high-risk occupations, such as machine operators, construction workers, truck drivers, and farmers acquire benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance while only 12% of the other labor groups are likely to seek out Social Security benefits.
