Wall Street Journal: math jobs good, physical labor jobs bad.

What do you expect The Wall Street Journal to report!? We would like to see the Lumberjack Times‘ report on best and worst jobs. Below are the ten best and worst jobs “based on income, working environment, stress, physical demands and job outlook, using data from the Labor Dept. and U.S. Census and researchers’ own expertise.”

We had to look up 'actuary' too. Yes, it is a mathematics-based job.

Yes, your dental hygienist makes $67K a year. Not bad.

Basically, these are jobs we are trying to outsource to China, India, or persons with don't-ask-don't-tell immigration status.

A roustabout performs routine physical labor and maintenance on oil rigs and pipelines, both on and off shore. Hard. Work.

Of course, the secret answer behind door #3 is that in this economy, any job is a ‘good’ job.
