What are the top 6 revolting jobs that will earn you a high salary?
Will people honestly do revolting jobs for money? If you need to raise a family in the current economic climate, then how could you argue with a salary that can help you do that, even if the job is totally gross. Below are some of the most revolting jobs you can make a career of, and earn top dollars from too.
1. Garbage Collector – up to US $60,000 per year
We all generate tons of trash, and someone obviously has to come and take it away, so our cities and towns don’t become unsightly. Someone has to deal with the rotting and stinking refuse that we throw to the curb.
Not only do they have to deal with all the vile things we throw away, but they also have to do this job rain, hail or shine. Imagine how vulgar the stench would become after sitting in the hot sun for a day? It could also be quite dangerous – they have to deal with frustrated drivers who are waiting for them to finish a pickup, or who might not see them and run them over.
Also, there is garbage that could potentially contain dangerous items like broken glass and human waste. Luckily garbage collectors are recompensed for this nasty work. Also, the average salary of a garbage collector can be up to $60,000 per year.
2. Portable Toilet Cleaner – up to US $60,000 per year
If you have ever been to an outdoor event like a music festival, you have likely used a portable toilet. Naturally, these are not attached to plumbing in the ground, so someone has to take on the job of removing all the waste once they become full, and the festival is over.
Considering these toilets are usually the most revolting toilets you will ever use, as at festivals they are patronized by drunk people who aren’t in complete control of their faculties, this has to be one of the most revolting jobs around. Portable toilet cleaners have to vacuum out all the waste, and then use a high-pressure hose to clean out the interiors.
To make the job worse, sometimes the toilets tip over spilling human excrement everywhere, requiring that they must be urgently cleaned up. One of these cleaners can clean up to 60 toilets per day – but luckily they are recompensed for this dirty work in the range of around $60,000 per year.
3. Sewer Inspector – up to US $60,000 per year
Honestly, this is one really disgusting job. You literally have to immerse yourself in human excrement as a career. Not only is this a revolting job – it can be incredibly dangerous work with exposure to dangerous bacteria and rodents – even the occasional dead body.
And because people will flush ridiculous things down their toilets, sewers can get clogged, and this is when these inspectors are called to examine these exact problems. There is also a branch of this type of work where you can become a sewage diver.
Sewage divers have to literally swim into, and under, rivers of sewage to remove clogs. But the recompense of getting this stink under your skin is thankfully quite a lot – a sewage inspector can earn up to $60,000 per year.
