It's that time of the year when leading magazines publish those get-the-most-clicks list, such as "Best/Worst Jobs in 2015."
Of course, the list is created after much commendable research into many factors, such as compensation, work environment, working hours, etc. And sometimes, I can sense which ones are going to be down and which ones are coming on top.
But then, something cringes within me. Can any job be categorized as "worst"? Isn't it more dignified to have a job than not having one at all? Of course, any job that is demeaning and that a person takes up because of poverty or out of compulsion can be deemed as worst on a case-by-case basis. Other than that, such listings are pretty useless in my eyes. I'd rather choose to respect every job, every working person, even if your job ranks low in these lists.
Good day to you! :-)
