Worse than a lumberjack, if you know what it means.
Worse than a dishwasher.
Worse than a garbage collector.
Worse than a dairy farmer.
That’s the job of a news reporter.
The worst job on earth.
That’s the finding, if you believe that kind of thing, of Career Cast, an American human resource consultancy firm. On its website, the researcher lists low pay, stress, etc as the causes.
The study said:
“…(News reporting) has lost its lustre dramatically over the past five years and is expected to plummet even further by 2020.”
News reporters are ranked at No. 200, photojournalists are only slightly better at 188. But look at the bright side: none of the other 199 “better” professions than ours can report this piece of news.
