Surprise! Or maybe not...

Seems like I'm always the last to know but about a year ago Forbes published an article on the 10 most surprisingly low-paying jobs

Compiled from data sourced from the US Bureau of Labour Statistics, Forbes determined that to make the list the average pay of employees had to be under US$50,000 per annum yet commonly perceived as being more lucrative than in actuality.

Private investigators made the list.

Of course the criteria for selection were entirely subjective and based on what the writers thought the various occupations were worth. Ironically, and yet somewhat satisfyingly, reporters also made the list.

Perhaps someone at Forbes was angling for a pay rise?
