- Mining, manufacturing among most dangerous US jobs
- June 10, 2010
While many job seekers have been frustrated with the country’s ailing employment market, there are some sectors hiring. The problem, though, is that these jobs can be dangerous.
Two such industries, mining and manufacturing, have seen dramatic increases in jobs over the past few months, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Last month alone, 10,000 mining jobs were added across the U.S., and the majority were in the fields of exploration, sampling and drilling. The industry has added 50,000 jobs since October 2009, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Mining may be dangerous, but the wages are usually much higher than comparable work in other industries.
Similarly, the country has added 126,000 manufacturing jobs since December thanks to an increase in the need for computers, aircraft and machinery.

Because jobs in both of these sectors can be dangerous and carry a high risk that a fatal accident may occur, it is advisable that any workers entering these industries invest in a life insurance policy to ensure that their loved ones are financially secure in the event of an accident.
