OK we beat up the plumbers for making too much money. (perhaps unfairly)
Now what job is the one that there isn't enough money on the planet to get you to do?

I say the guys who hot mop roofs.

Yeah the hot mop roof job looks tough.

I usually watch the asphalt paving crews and say no way.

Laid off in winter (this area) worked like dogs when not laid off, working in the blazing sun or stuck working nights for highway jobs. Getting hit by cars when working on streets.

No, not for me.

Garbage man.

Definitely....garbage man.

Especially in the summer. PFEWWW!!!!!

New York City does pay its garbage men VERY well.

You'd think that what basically is unskilled labour (walking behind a truck and flinging dripping bags full of waste into the back) would just pay minimum wage....but nope. Sanitation workers also get early retirement benefits.

Then again, they have to be out in all weather. Beating sun & humid weather (you know how rotting trash starts diffusing its particular aroma in that environment); Freezing cold and snow.

Repeated bending and twisting as you fling those heavy garbage cans and bags into the back of the truck....

I'm a wimp, I guess.

They have a TV show about this called "Dirty Jobs" on Discovery last night.

Had this guy crawling around in an SF sewer with roaches raining from above. (But finished with him doing demo on a construction site, which some find kinda fun!)

My answer:
Embalmer! I would be a coroner over an embalmer any day, as it would lend some sort of scientific merit to handling the dead. The element of ersatz that is required to dress and put make-up on dead bodies is too much for me.

In the distant future, (Knock on wood) I will be cremated!

Any job that would require me to go to the same place and sit in a cubicle in front of a computer screen day after day.
