Social Work is the most stressful and badly paid job in the CNN poll.

Ladies and Gentleman I am a Social Worker, proud to be a Social Worker, and have been for 41 years.

I feel very validated to see a CNN poll on jobs that pay badly and are very stressful and find that Social Work is #1 not #5 or #10 but #1.

In light of what has been going on recently at GCASA with its financial difficulties and it high demands for service with clients who have multiple and at times overwhelming problems, and being snipped at by people who seem to believe that we are overpaid and a drain on the taxpayers, it was very vaidating to find out that there is some objective evidence that my thoughts and feelings are correct.

Substance abuse counselor is #13 on the list out of 50. You can check it out by clicking here.

I recommend this brief article to you.
