Labor Dept. reveals the most stressful jobs of 2023

A report by the Department of Labor reveals the statistically most stressful occupations in the United States of 2023, ranging from health care workers to Hollywood filmmakers. 

The Occupational Information Network, or O*NET, which is part of the Department of Labor, ranked 873 of the jobs with the highest “stress tolerance.” The rankings factor which jobs require “accepting criticism and dealing calmly and effectively with high-stress situations.”

First reported in USA Today, the jobs don’t just include careers that pay high salaries, including urologists (ranked No. 1) and judges (ranked No. 4). Some of the jobs pay low median wages, such as retail supervision (No. 9). 

Though some positions on O*NET’s ranking require multiple degrees or postgraduate school, the list comprises “many low- and middle-skilled occupations with high levels of stress,” Sania Khan, chief economist at Eightfold AI told USA Today.
