I actually think it might be the opposite because the longest-living supercentenarians often tend to be hard-working people, like Okinawan farmers still climbing trees at 100+ years old to pick fruit every day. It's one of the prominent traits they tend to share in common. It's like their responsibilities gave them the motivation to wake up every day and continue living.
When hard workers die fast, I think it's when they combine it with an unhealthy lifestyle like a very sedentary one, or one that involves alcohol, smoking, or a chronic disease. Asimov was diagnosed with AIDs, for example.20
I think it has more to do with genetics and life style. People that have bad health habits will tend to die earlier. If you have a very stressful job and it causes you to drink excessively and eat fast food a lot it will cause an early death but it is not strictly the job that is the cause.20
On average, probably. However, perhaps the ones who do creative or meaningful work don’t mind. There is more to life than living as long as possible and someone who works hard has the chance to create more value for family and society than someone who does not.10
It was said that if you like your job, then you "never work a day in your life".
That IS pushing things a bit, but if someone is happy doing whatever they must to earn a living, at least their job is less likely to be a source of stress.20
No I think less busy people die faster. I have seen it once they fall into a depression at a certain age and point thats it.20
Death can't be predicted. Let's say there were 2 people, both had healthy diets, exercised regularly, and no diseases or medical conditions. If one worked very hard and the other didn't, the stress of being so driven can take a toll on your body and mind. If they were under no stress or pressure to get the work done, then maybe it would not shorten their life.0
Its the stress and how it affects a persons heart im guessing10
There may have been other lifestyle related factors involved in their untimely deaths20
Depends on Diet and Health.10

My dad was a Farmer that worked 80-100 hours a week. He continued to work 80 hours a week between 2 jobs after the farm went belly up till he got heart failure. The answer is yes. You aren't made to just work work work. Actually 34 hours of work a week has been found to be ideal. This has been found to lead to happier, healthier, and more productive workers as shown in Ireland.
