The present study aimed at exploring the difference in male employees' psychological work-stress levels. A total of 70 participants from Karachi participated in the study. Their aged ranged from 24 to 34 years. A self-constructed Psychological Work-Stress Questionnaire along with a Demographic Information Questionnaire was administered. It was hypothesized that the level of psychological work stress will be higher in male employees working more than 40 hours per week as compared to those working less than or equal to 40 hours per week. The questionnaire was found to be reliable (Cronbach's Alpha =.70). The research findings show a significant difference between psychological stress of male employees working for more than 40 hours per week and those working for less then or equal to 40 hours per week (p<.01).
