The table provided is directly copied from page 173 of The Wisdom of Psychopaths. It explains the source is The Great British Psychopath Study, where self-selected people submit their own Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale, and categorise themselves according to a list of a hundred or so occupations. The occupations listed notably do not include "...

There's an interesting recent paper by Spencer and Bryne (2016), which may shed some light on this, but also raises more questions. It seems that at least in a "typical" corporate structure, there is more psychopathy at the top level... but this seems to have no real impact on the employees' job satisfaction. Finally, there was a huge bias towards men in the ...

As DavePhD pointed out, the executive memorandum only applied to the executive branch. The Office of Management and Budget reports historical data since 1981 for "Total Executive Branch Civilian Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) Employees (excluding Postal Service)" in this file. I included the data at the bottom of this answer. For convenience, here is a plot of ...

It looks as if there is one important distinction not to be overlooked, slightly different from the claim that came from a headline. The cited study asked for: What would turn out to be the U.K.’s most psychopathic profession? That means: which tested persons had the most psychopathological traits. That is slightly different from "profession with the ...

The most detailed study on this was done by the University of Oxford. The study concludes that there is a small effect on wages for low skill, low wage workers, with slight downward pressure. Those most effected are migrants themselves, rather than "natives". Also, the effect is temporary and offset in the longer term by the benefits of migration pushing up ...

Actually, contra to Cristobol's answer, the company did admit staffing shortages, just on a somewhat longer-term time frame and related to the disruptions caused by the pandemic. The only proximate interference with staff mentioned in relation to this incident was something related to hotel rooms availability and on-duty time limits...: Southwest blamed its ...

Hours Worked First, Spain does not have excessively long hours of work among OECD countries. Source: OECD.Stat: In fact, at 1,691 hours per annum in 2015, Spain is slightly below the median of 1,749 and mean of 1,756. Spain does not have longer working hours in comparison with other OECD countries Long hours reduces birth rates Lack of correlation is ...

Short answer: Probably not. Looking at international comparisons of strike statistics (as paradigmatic with other forms of protest, which may or not be valid), South Africa does not rank 'top', regardless of how protests (here, strikes) are counted. Slightly longer answer: By regarding all police-recorded protests over a 17-year period, this paper (...

It has been denied both by Southwest (SWA) and by their pilots' association (SWAPA). SWAPA has raised objections to the vaccine mandate, not because they oppose it, but because it was imposed without negotiation. However, staffing levels remain the same. This was conflated with a scheduling delay that snowballed and resulted in the cancellation of some ...

There have been efforts made to quantify number of protests based on some benchmarks of comparison, see A Global Standard for Reporting Conflict which summarizes such an approach as follows, emphasis mine: propose an innovative conceptualisation of journalistic epistemology in which ‘social truths’ can be identified as the basis for the journalistic ...

Disclaimer: This is difficult to actually prove without performing rather intrusive research into the lives of Spanish couples. For part 1: No, they don't work longer hours (source). They do, however, finish work later which supports part of the claim your source makes: Experts say long working hours and a culture of eating late at night and going to bed ...
