Job Fair | Online Degrees

One of our January articles highlighted some of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S, based on number of deaths per 100,000 workers in 2007. Commercial fishing topped the list. I have to admit, I really just wanted the opportunity to draw this comic (for some reason, Death sitting in a benign setting is always good for a laugh). But while I'm here, how about a little rant? 

Why do people keep going into these careers?!

Opportunities abound for people to get better, safer jobs, at least in the U.S. Higher education is more widely available than ever before. The myth that people born into a certain social class or career are destined to remain there is obsolete. Anyone, with the right amount of determination and hard work, can get a better education and a better job. This has never been so true as it is now. 

Get yourself some schooling, regardless of the cost. Find a career that will allow you to make your living without a high risk of dying. Sitting at home every night, with all of your fingers still in place and a soft office belly under your shirt, you'll be glad you did.
