10. Mail Carrier

The job of a mail carrier has never been identified as a glorified job, with caricatured images of postal workers chased by dogs or, more realistically, spending long hours behind the wheel of a mail truck. As the tenth worst job in the country, postal service mail carriers can expect to make a median annual salary of $49,800 per year, or about $22.58 per hour.
