Well, the title is apposite because harassed workers can resist pressure to quit by taking antidepressants to compensate from the stress by harassment.

But perhaps there is a better, unspoken, link between antidepressants and the subject matter of the article: it is apparent from many statistics that serious psychological issues and suicide rates increase very significantly among people who lose their jobs.

Especially in middle age and later when the worker knows that probably means long term ruin, as they are too experienced to be hired again in a similar position.

I would not be surprised if antidepressants were much more common than average among:

* workers harassed to quit by their companies when these workers know that they have little chance of finding another comparable job and have to put up with whatever;

* people who have lost a job they will find hard to replace (because of age, experience, location, ...) and with obviously bleak personal and financial prospects.
