If anyone bothered to click on the links, eventually you come to a page where the methodology for the survey is clarified. You would also note that the actual article is "America's Most Stressful Jobs".

Quote:
Methodology - Stress Rankings for Jobs Rated 2012
THE 11 STRESS FACTORS

The amount of stress a worker experiences can be predicted, in part, by looking at the typical demands and crises inherent in his or her job.

Our ranking system for stress considered 11 different job demands which can reasonably be expected to evoke stress (see list below). Each demand was assigned a range of points. A high score was awarded if a particular demand was a major part of the job, fewer points were awarded if the demand was a small part of the job, and no points were awarded if that demand was not normally required. For example, "deadlines" was one demand measured. Journalists, who often face daily deadlines, received the maximum of 9 points in this category. In contrast, biologists, who seldom face deadlines, received no points. The demands measured and the point ranges assigned to each area are as follows:

Travel, amount of 0-10
Growth Potential (income divided by 100)
Deadlines 0-9
Working in the public eye 0-5
Competitiveness 0-15
Physical demands (stoop, climb, etc.) 0-14
Environmental conditions 0-13
Hazards encountered 0-5
Own life at risk 0-8
Life of another at risk 0-10
Meeting the public 0-8

On top of all of that, they've got to deal with this guy.

That 35k is your first two years of service, even then your food and lodging is payed for because you are still in training. I'd say your average "soldier" makes around 50-55k, with the higher scales in the trades.

As for the CEO, I wonder how much bonus or dividend they received every year.
36mil is relatively low compare to this. USA #1. John Hammergren of McKesson One-year total compensation: $131.2 million

All oil rig work onto the list of most stressful

- you fuck up you get hurt... bad... possible death/missing limbs
- can work for up to 12 hours with next to no breaks when the crunch is on
- get yelled at cuz things arent happening fast enough
- work a week during the day.. then gotta change your sleeping schedule and work nights

Could add more. It was by far the hardest job I've ever done.

2. Firefighter. Annual income: $45,250

I dont think firefighters have hard jobs. They barely fight fires...mostly responding to car accidents.
For their night shifts...they just sleep. They have it good.

Imagine getting to a car accident scene with limbs everywhere. Not to mention wildland firefighters in BC and Alberta have a long wildfire season to deal with every damn year.

I'll give you another example why this list is full of shit. Low level assembly worker is considered not stressful?

-Loud Environments
-Production Demands
-Repetitive Stress Injury
-Dirty conditions

Case closed, especially since Librarian isn't on the low stress list.

I'm pretty sure most of the $$ is from stock options in which case, the tax is a lot lower (capital gain). There's also a lot more tax saving strategies for people in the uppermost brackets.


Interesting, never heard of Yamana Gold before... Was expecting Barrick's CEO to be there tho :O
