"When people don't know what's going to happen and they don't have control over events, it leads to increased levels of anxiety and stress," said psychologist Dennis Stolle, one of the researchers.
Psychologist Stolle also emphasized that work schedules should be predictable so that people do not feel that their lives are getting out of control.
