What low-wage jobs often cause severe lifelong illnesses?
my friend and I would like to do a thesis based on the idea that low-wage workers often have to cope with life-long illnesses that come with the jobs that keep them alive. What else are they gonna do? Jobs are scarce. Anything you give would be of utmost importance, since this isn't exactly a hot topic (we speculate its because the big companies hiring the poor workers pay them to keep their mouths shut about all the sicknesses they've acquired through the years). Like Xerox operators. Don't they get sick after years of being exposed to the radiation and particles everyday 8 hours a day? Or sewage guys (sorry, i dunno what they're called). Don't they get sick with all that crap? PLEASE HELP US, BECAUSE ONLY A GENIUS CAN. =) Much appreciated. +)
