Guess they didn't compare it to hanging
live chickens at the beginning of the
chicken processing plant.
Bend down, pick up 6 in each hand and lift
them over your head and hang each one in a
shackle. Eight hours per day, 5-6 days per week.
Tyson Foods and Pilgrim are big chicken processors.
Every day they make about $100 usd.

Tough job and society is encouraging kids to be soft.

The Universe is hostile, are we in fact encouraging the demise of our own species?

Re: Study shows shearing is toughest job in the world.
you rather work cleaning a shit ridden sewer? or shave a sheep?

 Quoting: Daersoulkeeper


Working in a sewer you would use protective clothing, as well as breathing apparatus.

Shearing a sheep requires a person to work in temperatures varying between -10*C to 60*C (inside some sheds). As well as dragging sheep weighing between 50-150kgs (ave 70-80kgs). Also working long distances away from home for months on end (as when Aussies/Kiwis come to Germany/UK to shear).

Just some examples.
 Quoting: Klaus 27749722


oh heaven forbid they work in both hot and cold temps. I do everything you just described, except shearing shep and I do it getting paid like 70 bucks a day....I have no sympathy if the money they make is what an above poster said.....none at allll...

You should come to work then and see just how you fare.

Less than 1% of the people who learn, actually stay in the industry.

Re: Study shows shearing is toughest job in the world.
haha, Before I clicked i knew OP was either an Aussie or Kiwi.

Surely shearing is a tough job.

Toughest, most physically demanding job I ever worked
was unloading 50 kilo burlap sacks of coffee beans from semi-truck trailers.
I didn't bring gloves on the first day.
My knuckles were bleeding by 10AM.

Sorry if you got some of those blood stained beans.

Same first day crutching.

Knuckles on right hand bleeding by the arvo.

And even in NZ finger tips can bleed as the sand erodes them.

trust me that sheep doesn't know how to use a toilet before you shear it! So, that animal uses you like a toilet, and if you are lucky it kicks you, piss on you or it has some nice stuff in fleece. Not only excrements, also thorns which pierce your skin with that shit.
