Experts and leaders say they aren't sure what is prompting the uptick in workplace suicide. "If I knew, I'd be able to prevent it," said Leon Lott, the sheriff for South Carolina's Richland County, who lost one of his deputies to suicide in July.

"There's no such thing as a remedy," Mr. Barton said. He received 47 calls related to suicide attempts at work in 2017, up from 23 in 2016. "It's part of our work life," he said.

What, there's no remedy? It's part of the human existence to kill themselves when the pressure to perform 50+ hours a week gets too much? What a fucking delusional article.

Christians, and especially the zealous American Christians, have integrated their insane trust in everything that the state says is God's work so deeply that they are no longer able to question it. The christian church is absolutely disgusting, engineered perfectly to get desperate families hooked on the drug of hope, getting their shot every Sunday by the local priest, who somehow is able to talk with God and channel his words to the masses.
