Meter reader at the bottom. Does this mean parking meter or something in the USA?

Or like utility meter reading?

Utility meter reading actually in the UK used to be a decent job. It was pretty much unskilled but pre recession like 10 years ago you could easily earn £30k a year way back then which would be the equivalent of like 40k+ now, the job could be done in 4 days a week and contracted out so you were technically self employed and autonomous. Long as u got it done u could do your work whenever u felt like it really in the week so it was ultra flexible.

For a job that required no real qualifications it was better than most!

Recession hit hard and the work was cut down with reading cut back and wages cut down. It is rubbish now.

I know this because a family member did this job but quit about 4 years ago when the boom ended.

Do they still do electric meter reading though because most of the places with digital meters send the information back to the company via the powerlines to make that job redundant. I'm guessing parking meter reading, which can be a pain in the backside when you have to deal with people who literally pay on the last second or beg you not to give them a ticket.

Stapler thefts are at an all time low. Window seats with view of squirrels at an all time high. Life is good.

I'd hardly think being a flight attendant even fits the bill as a 'worst Job', I mean where else can you earn about $60,000-$80,000 for being a glorified waiter/waitress.

Yet being a Nurse, qualifies as a top 50 job. Sorry but a Nurse on average is paid half and has extremely long hours with attention to detail around the clock.
