Thursday Thirteen - 13 Jobs illegal Aliens Will Not Take From You - 7/10/08

A lot of people are concerned about illegal Immigrants taking jobs away from American citizens. The following is a partial list of occupations that are not threatened by the influx from Mexico. For job security, I recommend training in one of these professions:

1) Air Traffic Controller

2) Rocket Scientist

3) Brain Surgeon

4) Professional Basketball Player

5) Pharmacist

6) CEO of Microsoft

7) Airline Pilot

8) Actuary

9) Certified Public Accountant

10) Nuclear Physicist

11) Judge

12) Investment Banker

13) Professor of English Lit

Postscript: If your job can be taken away by someone who doesn't speak English, you have a shitty job.

Good list! I DO have a shitty job, but if someone takes it away from me, they will need to speak English and for that I am grateful.

Glad to see you are posting again. I need to do the same.

I don't know... I had a few English professors who couldn't speak the language. And when I was a TA, I had a number of students bring me their roommates (not simply their rommates' papers) for help because their own TA wasn't as fluid in the language as you'd expect an English major to be.

Scary, eh?

Hmmm, I think I'll apply for brain surgeon... just need to study more Anatomy and Physiology!! Of course, Rocket Scientist sounds fun as well! Happy TT!

Sometimes I'm glad to be an accountant.

CEO of Microsoft? Work for the Evil Emipre? Nah.

Well that says a lot for ambition, doesn't it. I do think we are going to have to learn the meaning of that in this global competition. We don't have to wait for people to come take jobs away anymore; the companies just ship our jobs overseas and leave us here.

Interesting list ... and perspective. Being 'happily retired' this is no longer a concern for me, but it is for many.
Hugs and blessings,

Haa. Good list. I enjoyed your previous 13 as well, did not know those things. And the "we waited 30 minutes..." picture, Great !

Great list! My job made the top 13... well, almost. I teach English. Close enough, right? Let's see who else is safe in my family. Dad was an air traffic controller. My f-i-l was a "rocket scientist" and my husband works for NASA. Looks like we're pretty safe. Thanks!

Michelle said...

Great list!! I think the list should be a lot longer....because no ones job should be threated here in America!!!

Nina said...

Well I guess I should be worried about my job it didn't make the top 13.

Thanks for visiting, happy T13
