Health.com: Best and Worst Jobs For Your Health

Service and retail employees

Worst

In terms of healthcare access and employer-sponsored benefit plans, it's the low-wage workers across several industries—especially service and retail—who are at the highest risk of being left out. "Even if insurance is offered for purchase, many of these workers can't afford it and instead opt to go without," says Dr. Chosewood.

These jobs—including cashiers, retail salespeople, and restaurant servers—can also be thankless and unrewarding, as well as physically stressful. Women in the food-service profession are more likely to be depressed than those in other careers.
