20 dangerous jobs not worth the pay

GOBankingRates Logo By Karen Doyle of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 43: Dangerous jobs are a part of life — there are some jobs that aren’t safe that must be done to keep the economy moving. Some of these jobs pay big money because of the danger involved, but others don’t.
GOBankingRates compiled this list by looking at occupations with the highest rate of fatalities, sourced from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries for 2017. These jobs were scored in terms of fatalities and mean annual wage, and then they were ranked based on that data. Although some jobs make the pay worthwhile, some of the most dangerous jobs in America might not be worth the pay.
