No one ever wakes up one morning and says to themselves, “I want to be a garbage collector!” It may not be a very fashionable job, but the dirtiest jobs in the nation tend to pay quite well. If you’re willing to dig through the muck and the mire, then there’s a job out there for you. Almost everything washes off, right? Here is a little more information about some of the yuckiest, yet high paying, jobs in the United States.
Hazardous Material Cleaner
When you’re a hazardous material cleaner, you will be faced with the biggest and baddest of messes created by people. You will clean up after a murder crime scene and dispose of any bodies or body fragments (depending on the nature of the crime). You’ll be faced with feces, hazardous chemicals, dead things, smelly things, and whatever else you could imagine to be disgustingly dirty. The sunny side of the job is that the Bureau of Labor Statistics claims the median pay for this job is somewhere close to forty thousand dollars a year.
