Always difficult and saddening to read about those who have a job that's difficult to bear for whatever reasons. Including and especially those who are finding it hard to make ends meet or those who have no income. Heartbreaking, really.
Makes me all the more grateful when I joined the crazy world of professional brewing over 26 yrs ago. Still love what I do, look forward to each and every day, and though some of the days can be long and taxing I wouldn't change a thing.
And......I get to enjoy the fruits of my labours at the end of the day....burp.....

I am closest to this -
Environmental Geologist/Project Manager.
I cleanup/oversee the cleanup/coordinate cleanups at contaminated sites, remediate groundwater, spills, monitored landfill groundwater, underground tanks, etc., etc.
My wife is in geotech. I started there, but after the first seasonal layoff in winter (Ohio at the time), I took the other path and went environmental/cleanup.
Almost 15 years now - safe and secure career wise (grateful for that), but bored out of my skull.
There are certainly worse troubles.

I'm retired now, so I sleep late, do a little web development for friends, smoke my pipe, shoot some photos, fish in the summer, and play in the workshop.
Before that I was a programmer (avionics, cartography, copy protection, and educational software)
Before that I taught English and speech, coached speech and debate, and directed a few plays.
Far prefer the "retired" part.

Chiming in here, I do computer application support for the state government here where I live. Mainly boring but the occasional interesting event occurs to keep me on my toes. Would love to do more consulting work for myself but stability of pay checks and spending time with my family won that argument.

Front-end web developer, we do a lot of work with WordPress (clients request it for the ease-of-use after we hand over the keys). Lots of fun. The downside of living on a small island is the talent pool is rather ... small. Makes it hard to hire good coders.
