We work jobs for a number of reasons, but it’s not called a “job” for nothing. You are performing work for money. Many jobs you know won’t pay for a second house or extravagant vacations, and other careers sound like they would, but actually don’t. This list contains the jobs that you’d expect to pay a lot, but don’t.
There is little consistency in what jobs pay or don’t pay. This list includes high profile positions, jobs that prolong the lives of others and bow ties. It also includes jobs that require a lot of schooling and very long hours of work. Benefits are not factored in, but in many cases are also below expectations.
