salary

The salary is per year, isn't it?

Doesnt make sense...

Forklift driver is 112 while serving in the armed forces is at the very end...? how does that make any sense???

economist hiring outlook negative?

#120 - Economist has a -2.9 hiring outlook? I'm confused - I thought lower hiring outlook is better but how does it go negative? Also, if I just look at the numbers - Work Environment 48, Stress 17, it seems like Economist should be ranked a lot higher if lower numbers are better.

Negative hiring

Negative 2.9 means if there are 100 economics working today, in the time frame stated there will then be 97 working, which means NO new jobs and no jobs for any economists looking for one unless at least 4% of the current economists leave their jobs. 

Best Jobs

The part about being an attorney ismisplaced.  The position is stressful with clients being yourworst adversary.  You list lawyers making $113000 per year.  If a new and even experienced lawyers made that much there would be a lot more lawyers than the excess number around now.  Most of the law schools should be closed and much of the problem relates to the ABA just accrediting a school that might have a building available, a few professors and a book collection that might pass for a law library. To pay $100+ for tuition and get the salary, complaining clients does not justify the reward.  The ABA continues to accredit schools, producing more lawyers and driving down fees and ones enjoyment in working in what was once a profession.  The lawyer job should be listed as one of the worst jobs, not best
