The charade continues...

Well the information is in. The Bureau of Labor statistics just released its most dangerous occupations list for 2006. And guess what (big surprise) firefighters and law enforcement are not even in the top 20 (have not been for years). So the next time a cop or fireman tells you their job is dangerous and that the big pay scale for only a High School diploma is justified and they need to retire at 50 (at 100% of their highest years pay) just give them this study published by their government pals over at the Bureau of Labor statistics.

Just look at a summary of the report above in the two charts below from the report (click on the charts to enlarge them):

Lakewood Accountability Action Group™ LAAG | | Lakewood, CA
A California Non Profit Association | Demanding action and accountability from local government™
