Railroad worker should be in the top 10 worst. your never home on call 24/7 365 work in all types of weather. bosses hide in the woods and watch you all the time to make sure your not breaking any rules. the only job I know that as soon as you get hired, they do everything they can to fire you. if wasn't for the benefits and the retirement they wouldn't be able to keep people doing this junk.
I get so angry every time I read one of these articles where a dental hygienist is touted asa top ten job pick!! As a former hygienist of over 25 years, I can tell you that the professionis over crowded, and has been for YEARS!! It is a two year program at a community college,where four years of education is crammed into two years. It's a difficult program to get through. Then you get a position that is stressful, both mentally and physically. The payis crappy, with little to no benefits provided. This is so all those money hungry dentistscan have their cushy lifestyles. FORGET any kind of pension. What you are left with ischronic hand, back, neck, and shoulder pain for a lifetime!! Women...pick anotherprofession!!!
All of the top ten jobs make sense and their usefulness in today's society speaks for itself, except the "Tenured University Professor". How about a list the excludes union-forced positions?
I'm just wondering, are there ANY jobs other than minimum wage for people who don't have math and science degrees that only a pittance of the population can get? (The average IQ is 100, which is generally enough to get through Algebra I with a C- or D.)
I got out of the millitary because of their "Political Correctness" being some officer's slave,Low pay,little or no appreciation(Returning Vietnam Vets,late 60s) Race relations,Thanks uncle sam I'm more of a Racest now than I ever was.(Gets me out of Jury Duty every time) & I got my life back!
Although how much you get paid is certainly not the only criteria for job satisfaction, it is an important factor. Both of my kids have college degrees but they are at opposite ends of the pay scale. My daughter works in the culinary world in New York. She recently left a job that had crazy hours and took a job with low pay because it is less stressful. She is planning to go back to school and get another degree so she can get a better job. My son has a masters degree in finance and is the highly-paid chief financial officer of a trade organization.
Average starting salary for a math major is only $50K.
Check out highest paying bachelor's degrees ...engineering is the way to go. Petroleum Engineering is at the top.
As far as highest paying jobs ... you left off Petroleum Engineer. You can make $100K plus right out of college with a bachelor's degree. Do some research!!
What a crock of crap. Math majors .. other than teaching...have few jobs available to them. Engineering is where the jobs are.
Math majors have many areas that are available to them. They happen to be smarter than Engineers. You, as an engineer, won't get it but...They are effing WAY more genius than you are!!!
