The Most Dangerous Job In The World Is Held Right Here In Alaska
If you were thinking that the title sounded a little fishy, you were right. The Alaska fishing industry has been called the most dangerous job in all of the world, time and time again. Once you see what these guys (and gals) go through on a daily basis, the reason why it has been dubbed as being so brutally dangerous is really not that surprising at all. These brave and courageous workers are a vital part of Alaska’s economy yet they risk their lives to help source the most wild, natural, sustainable seafood in the world.
From rogue waves, huge swells, heavy equipment and slippery conditions – it is easy to understand why the fishing industry in Alaska is the most dangerous, deadly occupation in the entire world. Not to mention one of the dirtiest jobs in the world. Would you ever risk your life to bring home a good (like – really, really good) paycheck?
