Seaman Report Abuse
Let’s be honest – there is no fun getting lost a sea. With millions of problems plaguing then and uncertainty every time they step out into the ocean, this has to be one of the worst jobs in the world.

Street Prostitute Report Abuse
Prostitution is the oldest career known to mankind. Despite its ancient history, street prostitution is one of the most dangerous jobs out there. One has to trust absolute strangers and risk life every other day on the job.

Coal Miner Report Abuse
I am the son, grandson, great-grandson, nephew and cousin of coal miners from Kentucky and West Virginia. There is a reason I went in the navy and then to college after high school. While the pay can be very good, and it is a very noble and necessary profession, you are old by the time your 40, if you live that long. I had several high school friends who were killed in the mines. Couple that with the black lung and lung cancer as well as destroyed backs, knees and nerves and it wasn't for me. Some of the hardest working, intelligent, loyal and patriotic people in the world. They deserve deep respect from the rest of the country for keeping the lights and heat on day after day.....

Lumberjack Report Abuse
With no one left to appreciate them, being a lumberjack is not as lucrative as it used to be. They have pressure from the green organizations and from the company they work for, making this a terrible choice of career for the future.

Poultry Processor Report Abuse
These guys have to work under inhumane conditions for the lowest possible wages. In fact, non Americans suffer more as data shows that American poultry workers are among the highest paid ones.

Sewing machine operator Report Abuse
The only job that pays lower than that of a poultry processor is the sewing machine operator. This job does not have any benefits and people are made to toil hard for meager salaries.
