    CareerCast has just posted a list of the 10 Worst jobs in America today. Notice how they are all jobs that are done by men. I wonder what the National Organization for Women has to say about that.

    I've ridden with female taxi drivers. My mother personally knows female EMTs.

    These are not all jobs performed solely by men...

    Most of those are perfectly good jobs if they're unionized. I know an ironworker in Seattle who makes $35 an hour.

    A job that I think should be in the top 10 is convenience store clerk.
    They get paid shit and especially on the night shifts there is a fairly high risk that someone is going to put a gun in your face for less than $100.

    what's so bad about being a lumberjack? after i left a corporate executive job i went off and was a lumberjack for a bit before getting back into corporate stuff. i thought it was fun and a great workout. holy crap - my arms and shoulders never looked better. i am not sure if i will opt for corporate again or maybe go be a roustabout on some oil rig in texas. as long as i am enjoying it, i don't care.

    Well they must take into account how dangerous the job is. I think lumberjack, farmer, taxi driver, seamen, roofer and iron workers are some of the most dangerous jobs.

    The 10 most dangerous jobs
    Occupation Fatalities per 100,000
    Timber cutters 117.8
    Fishers 71.1
    Pilots and navigators 69.8
    Structural metal workers 58.2
    Drivers-sales workers 37.9
    Roofers 37
    Electrical power installers 32.5
    Farm occupations 28
    Construction laborers 27.7
    Truck drivers 25

    I'd think they say women do perform those jobs so pull your head out of your ass and quit being sexist. Just like men are now commonly nurses, nannies/mannies, and do secretarial type work.

    Yup. My friend in college worked a convenience store gig. Late shift which was pretty quiet, and he liked it that way since he was able to get it a lot of study time. That was until some miscreant came in and robbed the joint. My buddy said the guy stuck a gun in his face and said "I'll give you 10 seconds to empty that register into this bag." To which my friend replied "I bet I can do it in 5."

    After the cops got finished taking the report, and his boss (then also on the scene) found out how it went down, the dude fired him on the spot for not putting up more resistance. It was all good though since my buddy had decided to move on long before that asshole canned him.

    My job used to be ranked as one of the ten most stressful in the USA. On the 200 job scale, it comes in at 189. Some days I think it should be higher, some days it should be #200.

    I agree, I've seen all these jobs being preformed by women.

    I was in NYC in '97 and got a cab....a female driver..we had a connection...she dropped me off at the hotel, I rolled the dice and said, "when does your shift end?"...it was like 2 hours later, I told her to keep the meter running and just drive around for the next two hours. She bought it and it worked out ( a little expensive maybe, but in NYC, much cheaper than buying drinks)..spent the nite w/her...damn she had great tits. She was from Eastern Europe...soso English...so hot.

    Oops, sorry, went off on a tangent there.

    Hey, thanks to everyone who said something about that women also do the 10 worst jobs! :smile:

    And besides, I clicked on the list for the 20 best jobs, and guess what? All 20 are traditionally male jobs as well. Imagine that? :biggrin1: (My job aspirations have included several of the 20 best jobs. However, I was extremely surprised to see parole officer as one of the 20 best! I would have thought that'd be one of the worst, having to deal with criminals and all...)

    ** My career aspirations at given times have included: software engineer, systems analyst, computer programmer, physicist, and astronomer... among others. Right now I'm trying to get back into the computer programmer or software engineer (Actually I don't see a lot of difference in those two fields, having had both titles and having done pretty much the same things at both). But anyway...

    Yes, some of the jobs on the "10 worst" list can be decent jobs but they are usually physically demanding. My dad held one of the jobs in the "10 worst" for many years until he retired.

    Different strokes for different folks. I know guys who work in the woods or fish and I can tell you most of them love what they do and wouldn't trade their lives for a white collar job. Many men cannot stand non-active, non-outdoor jobs. The money may not be great, and it may be hard on the body, but for some people, there is more to life than sitting on your ass pulling down big money.

    Have you ever been to sea, pulling your long lines in at dawn? The boat is rolling, it's cold, you need to sleep, but the sky is red, there's hot coffee in galley and your mates have your back. Heaven.

    I wonder who compiled that list.

    OK you sold me, I want to work on your boat...you sold me except for the cold part and the red sky in the morning, Does that mean "Sailor take warning?" But suffice to say I would rather have any of those jobs than be Marlo Thomas's or J Lo's personal assistant!:eek:
