PORTLAND, Ore. — A survey of nearly 13,000 workers by the social network, Fishbowl, found that 42% of workers nationwide have been drinking alcohol while on the job working from home.
The figures are higher (47%) in Oregon, Connecticut, and North Carolina. Washington polled at 46%.
The poll found that the highest percentage was among those employees who work in advertising and marketing.
20% say they have stocked up on alcohol. Marketwatch reports a 55% spike in the sale of beer, wine and spirits during the third week of March.
More than half (54%) of those surveyed also say they fear being laid off.
