hit or miss

some of this stuff makes sense. but other stuff is absurdly off.

its really sad how so many

its really sad how so many people have little value for art! 

hotel manager

More like motel manager. Hotel managers from ACTUAL hotels can make up to twice that amount. Who researched this? Its ridiculous 

Enlisted Military

You have to remember that the majority of enlisted personnel (like a HUGE majority) are E-1 through E-4, doing a 4 year enlistment and getting out, so the data are likely to be HUGELY swayed by that. Don't take offense if you served and loved it (I did 8 years and would have loved to stay in if I wasn't hurt and could guarantee I wouldn't be separated from my children for future deployments), I'm sure they just used some statistical formula, and with the huge population being young, only in it for the experience and the benefits of four years, at the bottom of the totem pole, taking whatever job their recruiter threw at them, etc... I'm sure that heavily swayed the position toward the bottom of the list.

Where are the Adjuncts?

America's best kept dirtly little secret: Contingient faculty at universities. They teach 70-80% of all classes at colleges and universities, work 50-70 hours a week, and make less that 25K a year with NO job security and ZERO opportunity for advancement. How do you feel about the fact that these are the people who are, by and large, educating the future of the country?

An Author makes what????

Uh . . no.  Seriously.  $56k a year.  Maybe with 10 years experience.  First 2 and 3 years will be well below 20k.  In fact, you'll be lucky to top 10k.

Wait isn't garbage collector

Wait isn't garbage collector & artist the same job?

For example...

Tony Soprano was a garbage collector...

art

very funny

Bogus List

Artist = Number 148/200.Garbage Collector = 160/200.So, being an artist is only 12 steps better than being a garbage collector? And isn't the best job the one each individual person is happiest doing? To me, being an artist is number 1/200. I'm sure everyone else feels the same way about his/her own career. If not, then you shouldn't be doing it.
