15 Worst Jobs in the World That Would Make You Love Your Own Job

Manual Sewer Cleaner

These manual sewer cleaners still exist in Dehli, India. Of course, we all know that this type of job involves poop and other disgusting stuff they can find. What they do is they go into sewers and manually clear blockages. The sad thing about it is that they’re only paid about 5 dollars a day plus a bottle of booze. They stand in the waste which reaches chest high and use long wooden sticks to clear jams. In some areas, workers crawl through sewage without protective gear. A study found that 80% of sewage cleaners in India die before the age of 60 because of work-related health problems.
