CNN Money.com has released its list of America’s Most Deadliest Jobs and readers of this blog will not be surprised to learn that commercial fishing once again ranks as our country’s top deadliest job.
Here are a few of the top most deadly jobs according to the report:
- Commercial Fishing: 2oo deaths per 100,000
- Logging: 61.8 deaths per 100,000
- Airplane Pilots: 57 deaths per 100,000
- Farmers and Ranchers: 36 deaths per 100,000
Check out the article here. It’s pretty interesting and it always astounds me how far ahead of the second most deadly job commercial fishing ranks.
I can’t even think of anything to write other than there is a reason we celebrate like crazy each time George returns from sea. There are too many fishermen who do not come back home.
