You know the symptoms—stiff neck, dry eyes, brainpower of a zombie. The telltale signs of another marathon session at your laptop grinding away on a spreadsheet or sitting through the day’s fourth video meeting. You love your job, but you definitely don’t always love your computer.

If they were informed, they would know the answer; i.e. jobs are very scarce and difficult to find these days, and unemployment is still high, despite improvements in the economic picture.
