CareerCast has published their list of the 10 worst  jobs for 2012:

Physical labor, declining job opportunities, a poor work environment and high stress are all pervasive attributes among those jobs that comprise the 2012 Worst Jobs List.

  1. Lumberjack- Fells, cuts, and transports timber to be processed into lumber, paper, and other wood products.
  2. Dairy Farmer- Directs and takes part in activities involved in the raising of cattle for milk production.
  3. Enlisted Military Soldier-From serving food in the mess hall to fighting a battle on the front line to avoiding land mines along the path to a village, the duties a soldier carries out have very different levels of responsibility. (This one really surprised me.)
