Are you a workaholic? A CBS News suggests that there are more workaholics than ever in America.

They are also working three hours per week more than their parents did.

The CBS News article mentions a group called Workaholics Anonymous that has 35 meeting sites nationwide. They also provide an interview with Bryan Robinson Ph.D., author of Chained to the Desk: A Guidebook for Workaholics.
