The World’s Filthiest and Most Dangerous Job
Posted on September 1, 2012
Just when you think that your job is the worst ever, you may want to think again.
I present you Devi Lal — one of India’s sewer divers!
Devi, 43, is paid just under US$6, plus, a bottle of booze before he dives into the filthy sewers of India.
What’s more interesting is that sewer divers wear nothing but shorts, or even their underwear!
Concerning safety, according to Delhi Safai Karamchari Commision chairman Harnam Singh, almost 70% of sewer divers die on the job.
In the last six months, for instance, 61 divers have died.
