1 in 5 Americans Find Their Workplace Threatening

Nearly one in five workers say they face a hostile or threatening  environment at work--which can include sexual harassment and bullying,  according to a new study conducted by the Rand Corp., Harvard Medical  School and the University of California, Los Angeles. 

Meanwhile, roughly  55 percent say they face "unpleasant and potentially hazardous"  conditions and about 75 percent say they spend at least a fourth of  their time at work on "intense or repetitive physical" labor. However,  not all of the study's findings are grim: More than 80 percent say they  get to solve problems and try out their own ideas. 

About 58 percent say  they have supportive bosses and 56 percent say they have colleagues they consider to be good friends.
