Are These The Worst Jobs In America?

By Vivian Giang

If you happily get out of bed every morning for work, you're one of the lucky ones - not everyone is satisfied with their current job.

These people feel stuck for a variety of reasons, including low pay, irregular hours or the inability to move upward, says a report published by CareerBliss. The company identified the unhappiest jobs based on more than 100,000 employee-generated reviews between February 2011 and January 2012.

The ratings are based on key factors such as work-life balance, one's relationship with their boss and co-workers, their work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and control over the work that they do daily.

Here are the top 10 jobs that make workers' lives miserable.

All these "white collar" type jobs pay reasonably well. Jobs in the meat/poultry industry may actually be the worst. Guess they don't count "guest workers" that make less that minimum wage. After that, FAST FOOD and the various super-discount stores (dollar stores), also really suck--but they are all that's going on out here in the world.

Farm jobs and race track jobs are probably not listed for what ever reason. But these jobs are some of the worst because one does not have a day off! We work seven days a week without a day off; and this definitely suck because of the stress; burn out and physical abuse............

Those jobs pretty much hit on every area or industry. Could it be that people in America just don't like working any more because they have a sense of entitlement? Or maybe we are just becoming lazy?
