Well, this is unfortunate.
According to the website CareerCast.com, the newspaper reporter is considered the worst job of 2013. The website ranked the top 200 best and worst jobs in the United States. "Reporter (newspaper)" was ranked in 200th place. The website considered factors including physical demands, work environment, income, stress, and hiring outlook when compiling the list. While the reporter was ranked 200 out of 200 as the worst job of 2013, the actuary won the top spot.
