The WORST Jobs in America



Take a look at 10 of the worst jobs in America.They are seriously insane .

#10 Flight Attendant

#10 Flight Attendant

Avg Salary : $37,740
Growth 0%
Flight attendants have always had a dangerous and stressful job but what made the job fall so many notches down the list this year was a "very poor hiring outlook" due to all the restructuring in the industry, Lee said. With the American and US Air merger, for example, that meant jobs being eliminated.
Airlines have decided that if they used to maintain four flight attendants on a flight, now they're looking to cut it to three. That's a 25-percent decrease."

#9 Roofer

#9 Roofer

Avg Salary : $34,220
Growth: 18%
You might think that with Hurricane Sandy and other home-damaging events last year that that might have offset some of the loss of work due to a weak housing market but Lee said repair is a small part of the roofing industry the bulk of it is new construction.
And, it was always a dangerous job with low pay to begin with. Add in the tough outlook and that lands this job squarely on the worst list.

#8 Mail Carrier

#8 Mail Carrier

Average Salary: $53,090.
Growth: -26%
Of course mail carriers have always had a tough job, braving the elements including desperate housewives and neighborhood dogs. But build into that the decline in mail volume due to email and texting plus the threat of canceling Saturday delivery and that drags it down the list with a negative hiring outlook. Saturdays haven't officially been canceled but the threat of it was built into this year's calculation and, Lee said, "It's pretty clear that's down the road." Right now in the industry, there are more jobs being eliminated than created, he added.

#7 Meter Reader

#7 Meter Reader

Avg Salary: $36,400
Growth: -10%
Meter readers figure out your utility bill. Because the job requires a low level of skill, they're viewed as being replaceable and don't have great job prospects. Their jobs also require lots of traveling and arguing with customers.
This job is "being replaced by the electronic meter reader and you don't need a person to show up and read your meter anymore,"

#6 Dairy Farmer

#6 Dairy Farmer

Avg Salary : $60,750
Growth: -8%
Your job as a dairy farmer is to ensure that your cattle are healthy, tended to, and able to produce milk to be sold. Seeing how your job is as a caretaker of another living being, the farmer must embrace the long hours that come with rising early to feed the cows and let them graze. This is a year-round process, and caring for the cattle on the daily basis becomes as routine as waking up, showering, and brushing their own teeth.
Because cattle live in muck and mud, a dairy farmer's work conditions are sloppy and smelly, and they come home from work smelly and covered in mud. The farmer has enough to worry about paying their bills on such a low salary, but constant battles over ruining a clean house can also cause havoc in a farmer's personal life.

#5 Oil Rig Worker

#5 Oil Rig Worker

Avg Salary : $37,640
Growth: 8%
The oil industry continues to make billions of dollars year after year but one of the few positions that doesn't join in the chorus of "We're in the Money" is the oil rig worker. These are guys (and perhaps a few ladies) who maintain the machinery and repair it. They're climbing to the top of rigs in any weather, be it North Dakota in January or Texas in July, Lee said. So, physical demands, stress and danger, coupled with low pay, make it a sure thing for the "worst" list.

#4 Actor

#4 Actor

Avg Salary : $17.44/hour
Growth: 4%
It's no secret, while most of us think of acting as a dream job (What's up, George Clooney!) — for the other 99 percent in the profession, it's a tough slog.
The dramatic 19-place drop on the list from last year isn't due to any huge drop in demand for actors, but rather new data that CareerCast obtained.
So, tough hiring outlook, low pay and a lot of stress. Imagine if you had to constantly keep auditioning for your job, and even if you were over-the-top qualified, you weren't picked due to your age or hair color.

#3 Enlisted Military Personnel

#3 Enlisted Military Personnel

Avg Salary : $41,998
Growth: Varies
Soldiers face the most danger and stress of all. Even if you're technically off-the-clock, the threat of deadly weapons never fully goes away. Members of the military report incredibly high stress and dangerous working conditions.
But here's the fascinating thing about the "worst" list — for many of these jobs, like soldier or actor — the people doing the jobs don't see it as the worst. Many love what they do and can't imagine it any other way.

#2 Lumberjack

#2 Lumberjack

Avg Salary : $32,870
Growth: 4%
If the job has a show documenting it on the Discovery Channel, it is probably extremely undesirable to the average guy or girl. This is the case for lumberjacks, a job that makes very little money and brings with it potentially fatal risks. The trees can weigh thousands of pounds on their own, and the addition of weather hazards, sharply bladed equipment, and human error make logging one of the most dangerous occupations in the entire country.
As recently as 2008, the fatality rate was 108 per 100,000 workers, a staggering rate when you compare it to other industries in America. The risk of dying is one thing, but consciously thinking about the risk of death while on the job can make everyday an emotional roller coaster.
With every strong gust of wind, impending rain cloud, or holler from a coworker, a timber cutter must have the fear of serious harm in the forefront of his mind. There are so many conditions that make being a lumberjack a job exclusively for the brave; working on land that is often steeply angled and long distances from medical care being chief among them.

#1 Newspaper Reporter

#1 Newspaper Reporter

Avg Salary : $36,000
Growth: -6%
Newspaper reporters have always had low-paying, stressful jobs with long hours but the consolidation in the industry and emergence of digital media have piled a bad job outlook on top of all that.
Think about the jobs: Lumberjack — that's pretty tough. Soldiers on the front line. You can't imagine that newspaper reporter is worse," he said. "But then you look at the criteria and you see it's worse. The hiring outlook is just terrible — it's a negative number!
Newspaper reporters may have the worst job ever but most still love what they do. They don't care. They got into the business for a reason. They stick it out even though they realize they might get laid off.
