    In our area at least a lot of postal carriers are now contract employees with moderate pay and limited benefits, including all rural route carriers. This started after they closed the nearest sorting center and a couple post offices.

    Is Congress still considering disbanding the USPS, or has that issue been settled?

    Divers on oil rigs are very highly paid specialists who do their work voluntarily. So are city workers, who have better wages and benefits than the average American. Therefore, that classification is nonsense. Dangerous, yes, but "worst", never.

    More libby-speak BS, especially coming from Fortune 500, the mouthpiece of the 1%.

    How about toxic waste diver?

    I think this job beats anything you can come up with...

    They swim in sewage. Enough said.

    “The worst was at a factory pig farm,” says Steven M. Barsky, the author of Diving in High-Risk Environments, the industry bible for hazardous-materials divers. “A guy had driven his truck into the waste lagoon and drowned. Not only was it full of urine and liquid pig feces, the farmer had dumped all the needles used to inject the pigs with antibiotics and hormones in there.” Someone had to recover the body, and the task fell to commercial hazmat divers.

    How tough could journalism be? There's no legal, civil, or professional consequences for getting anything wrong, or even inventing stories out of whole cloth.

    And most firefighter jobs are hotly competed for; the smoke-eaters really love their work.

    I wonder what criteria they used to establish these.
