Does your gig make the list?
Sure, everyone has complaints about their job, but no one should be both underpaid and overstressed at work. Long lines, large orders and the "customer is always right" policies make 50.3 percent of baristas report their jobs as stressful, and they earn a median salary of $20,300. Special education teacher's aides often come in with little experience so more than half, at 59.3 percent, report their gig as overwhelming, especially with a median income of $22,700. Loss prevention officers are supposed to catch shoplifters, but too much hesitation can mean lost inventory and the wrong move can bring a lawsuit or an unexpected weapon, so more than half, 54.3 percent, claim their jobs to be distressing with a median salary of $23,000. Physically, mentally and emotionally-demanding children make 60.5 percent of day care teacher's jobs overwhelming with a median income of $24,200. Finally, a whopping 72.6 percent of veterinarian's assistants claim their jobs to be stressful, often receiving the hardest and most disheartening cases, with a salary of $25,500. (CNN)
