Labor Day Countdown: 10 Characters Whose Jobs Suck Worse Than Yours

If you think your job is bad, allow television to say to you four little words: It could be worse.

That’s right, even if your work is boring, your hours, insane, and your boss, a beast, someone on the small screen is always — literally, always — having a crummier time of it than you.

So what if your company’s vision plan amounts to “squint harder” and its idea of a Christmas bonus is a cracked candy cane. It’s probably been a while since your supervisor brought a barbed-wire-covered baseball bat to your performance evaluation (a la The Walking Dead) or tasked you with bathing their grown son (as has happened on Another Period)!

And, if those notions alone don’t put your position in perspective (when you’ve finished shuddering, that is), perhaps the gallery below will do the trick. It’s TVLine’s Labor Day countdown of characters whose jobs totally suck worse than yours.

Just click below to get started checking out our picks from Outlander, Veep, Grey’s Anatomy and more, then hit the comments with the beleaguered small-screen employee(s) that you’d pink-slip us for having omitted from the list!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I’d have to put ‘Hunter’ from ‘Supernatural’ as a pretty crap job. Something always trying to kill you, living outside the law on stolen credit cards and hustling pool, all your friends are dead, relationships end bloody or ugly, and YOU DON’T GET PAID. Job perks: you get to shoot/behead/woodchipper monsters.

    • Tripp says:

      Very surprised this wasn’t on the list. Because despite how strong and capable the hunters look, they have to deal with all the side effects you listed, and then some. Thus, crappy job.

    Rachel’s job is the worst.
