Alcohol abuse is linked with working over 48 hours a week

Workers who put in more than 48 hours a week are more likely to drink harmful amounts of alcohol.

Researchers in Finland, where alcohol is really expensive, studied more than 300,000 people across 14 countries.

Their conclusion? Working longer hours increased alcohol use by 11 per cent.

Writer and blogger, Rich Patrick, joined The Evening Show to discuss these findings.
