Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:
Joblessness is far more than an economic misfortune.It can be a psychological
disaster for the unemployed and their families.It can cause illness,divide families
and create a downward spiral of feelings of worthlessness and lack of self esteem.According
to research done by M. Harvery Brenner,associate professor of health at Johns
Hopkins University,every 1% increase in the unemployment rate translates into
37,000 deaths over the next 6 years,including over 20,000 deaths from heart
attcks,900 suicides and nearly 500 deaths from cirrhosis of the liver.In addition,Brenner
estimates that 7,500 unemployed or their families will be admitted to prison
after committing a crime or to a mental hospital.“The impact goes well beyond
the individual who loses a job,”said Brenner.“stress caused by economic factors
affects our national life at every level.”Men who have been socialized as the
family breadwinner are especially hard hit by unemployment.They suffer greater
depression and anxiety and have a higher possibility of psychotic behavior than
men who are employed.“Nine months seems to be a crucial point when hope and
patience give out,”said a leading psychologist. After that,“illness,suicide,alcoholism,divorce,and
even crime grow at epidemic rate.”Left without a job,many workers feel they
have nothing to look forward to.They miss their coworkers and the routine of
going to work.For many,the sense of hopelessness grows worse every time they
are rejected for a new job.When this happens often enough,the rejection unemployed
workers feel may be exacerbated if some friends and neighbors avoid them as
if they had a contagious disease.
