Hate Your Job? This Man Has To Jump Down A Filthy Sewer

Hate Your Job? This Man Has To Jump Down A Filthy Sewer

God speed bro.

Is this the worst job in the world? While we might be inclined to say working minimum wage in a retail shop is a shit job, it's not actually shit, is it?

I'll tell you what's shit: shit. Working in shit, stinking of shit. That's what one man has to do on the reg over in Bangladesh.

This sewer cleaner with the Dhaka city Corporation, is an unsung hero. A man who risk it all just to clean other people's shite. Talk about selfless.

Armed only with a stick, this poor bloke doesn't even have the privilege of having a mask to protect his mouth, nose and eyes from the froth of crap he inevitably comes across, day-in day-out. Not to mention the poisonous fumes.

His job sees him scooping out liquid waste with gloveless hands just so that the Bangladeshi capital can continue to function.

Dhaka's population stands at around 14 million. The city has recently been hit by drastic floods in part due to the heavy rain but more because of the less-than-average storm drainage system.

It's a dangerous world for these workers, with the numbers of deaths ever on the rise. Despite these figures, conditions have failed to improve.

People have chimed in with their opinions online.

One Redditor said: "Well you gotta keep it in perspective. If they pay him 1,000 dollars for the week, but he dies of 8 separate communicable diseases within a few days it effectively doubles his rate of pay."

"Yeah, when you say your job sucks think back on this image and suck it up. They aren't paying that man nearly enough," another added.

One person said: "The last time someone posted a similar picture it was actually a sewer canal after a flooding, so he might just be removing bigger stuff by hand so the water can flow properly again."

Others were less sympathetic. One said: "Common sense tells me, 'There's no way that's poo water.' The look on his face tells me, 'Holy fucking shitballs, this mad man is neck deep in poo'."
