The most Stressful Jobs of 2012 are in Public Safety.Safety Equipment

A career placement company, CareerCast, recently ranked the most stressful jobs of 2012.  They used factors like Competitiveness, Physical demands, Hazards encountered, Own life at risk, Lives of others at risk and more.

These are their five most stressful jobs (and average incomes):

1. Enlisted Soldier ($35,580)
2. Firefighter ($45,250)
3. Airline Pilot ($103,210)
4. Military General ($196,300)
5. Police Officer ($53,540)

4 of the 5 most stressful jobs are in Public Safety.  Clearly our US Military, Firefighters and Police Officers stand out as our nations heroes!!  They deal with extraordinary demands and hazardous environments.  They protect the lives of so many!!

And if their jobs weren’t enough, the budget cuts of recent years just adds to the stress.  This means that they cannot purchase the safety supplies and equipment that they most desperately need.

We, the public, should be protecting our heroes and making sure they have all the resources they need … to serve and protect us!!
