10 Stressful And Dangerous Jobs That Pay Well



Bounty Hunter

There’s a reason Dog The Bounty Hunter has made his job a family affair. That’s because good bounty hunters can make more than $100,000 a year when they are hunting escaped convicts and those that have jumped bail. Of course, there is also quite the level of danger, since you’re going after people who really, really don’t want to go to jail. Bounty hunters need to be in good shape and well trained in hand to hand combat as well as marksmanship. They should also be trained in how to take down an assailant safely so they don’t hurt the individual.

Nuclear Power Operator

Don’t let Homer Simpson fool you. Nuclear Power operators are highly educated and hold a job where one screwup could mean not only their death, but the deaths of hundreds, thousands and even millions of people. Because of this, there are plenty of people who also don’t want the job. Therefore the position pays more than $75,000 a year, on average.
