By Emily Eagan and Laura HittiAssociated PressThe number of Americans who report that they have been exploited by their employers rose to a record high in 2017, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The bureau’s latest report on the 2016 data shows that, for the first time since 2010, a record number of workers said they had been forced to work in exploitative jobs.
In that year, more than a million Americans were forced to do unpaid overtime.
The number was the highest since 2009, and it is a sharp increase from the 692,000 who reported that they had experienced forced overtime in 2016.
The rate is almost double the rate of workers who reported being forced to take paid sick days or paid family leave in 2016, the report said.
Many workers say they are struggling to survive, and some of them are leaving their jobs in droves, especially those who have experienced harassment.
The report also shows a steady decline in the percentage of people who say they were subjected to sexual harassment or assault, with just over 1 in 5 saying they were.
The percentage has remained steady since 2009.
“Employers are aware of the problem, and they’re working to change their culture,” said Amy Taggart, a labor economist at the University of Southern California, who co-authored the report.
“Employers know that they are responsible for the work they do, so they’re trying to prevent harassment and assault from happening, and that’s why they are so much more likely to be held accountable when they do.”
The report shows that the percentage is down for workers who have been sexually harassed or assaulted, but the rate remains high, even though the vast majority of workers say that they were never harassed or abused in the workplace.
The percentage of Americans saying they have experienced sexual harassment in the past year is the highest in nearly 20 years.
The data shows the number of people saying they experienced sexual assault is up to 5 percent, up from 3.5 percent in 2017.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 1.5 million people were sexually assaulted in 2016 and 1.1 million people reported being sexually assaulted.
The numbers are up by nearly 30 percent from 2016.
The study also shows that a small minority of workers are not feeling comfortable leaving their employers because they are afraid of being fired, or they fear being sued, which is a major concern for many people who are in precarious jobs.
The study found that about 6 percent of workers have experienced a negative experience at work in the last 12 months.
The vast majority have experienced no negative experience in the previous 12 months, with one-third saying they had no negative experiences in the prior 12 months and nearly half saying they would never leave their employer.
Some employers say that it is important to report harassment to prevent retaliation or retaliation-related retaliation.
But a number of employers say it’s not important to disclose harassment because that could deter workers from reporting it.
The number of American workers who say that a boss has made unwanted sexual advances has nearly doubled over the past two decades, the study said.
The Labor Department said that it was encouraging employers to disclose issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault, but also that it has found that a “large portion” of employees do not report their harassment or abuse because they believe they can keep it to themselves.
Some workers say the fear of being forced out of a job is so great that they would rather go to jail than report it.
“The only way I’m going to get out of here is if I do this to someone else, ” said one woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
“It’s like if I say something to my brother and my father.
They won’t believe me.”
