At a radio station we are used to working around a number of towers, but it's very infrequent that we actually see someone working on that tower. That changed today.

I walked outside and witnessed Troy Roberts, the owner of Ascend Tower, pictured above, perched high on this tower and he was comfortable enough in his surroundings to pose for the camera and wave at me.

Not me. If I'm ever found at the top of a radio, television or cell phone tower, it's because I lost the gun fight. Just not going to do it.

In fact, I found I wasn't alone in that and discovered there are a lot of jobs, like climbing these towers, that people say they wouldn't do for any amount of money.

After a little research, I found the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and discovered what they've deemed the Ten Most Dangerous Jobs in America.

  • Fishing and Hunting Workers
  • Logging Workers
  • Aircraft pilots and flight engineers
  • Roofers
  • Construction trades and helpers
  • Refuse and recyclable material collectors
  • Driver/sales workers and truck drivers
  • Structural iron and steel workers
  • Farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers
  • Grounds maintenance workers

Guess I just don't understand how military personnel and first responders didn't make the list.  At any rate, it's not just danger that some people will completely steer away from.

There are lots of variables that we just won't tolerate when it comes to our employment and after considering most of those variables, I've discovered these to be The Top 10 Jobs Most People Wouldn't Do for Any Amount of Money
