Well not a doc. that is for sure! Here are my top 3: 1.)factory workers, they work harder then most office employes for less money 2.) Firefighters, most are volunter & get no pay but they are risking there lives for others 3.)Convient store workers. If you never worked in one you wont get it but if you have, you'll know. They have to deal with alot of rude people & have more responsabilites then just running a registar. Such as cleaning, sweeping, mopeing, cooking (if there is a kitchen) & much more. I dont really think teachers are underpaid because they get summer vacation (paid or drawing unemployment) great benefits & much more. Dont get me wrong they have a IMPORTANT & hard job but all things considered they are compensated more for there time and efforts then alot of other professions (like firefighters or factory workers)

Underpaid doctors?? I don't think so...my 3 choices would be teachers, policemen and firemen... The peole we rely on the most...and get the least amount of pay. Sanitation workers make more!

All my teachers drove sports cars, so they definately get enough. My doctor has two houses and three different cars so he gets paid enough. Paramedics never get paid enough. Nor do firemen.

Most people in medical professions are underpaid but I'm not so sure about doctors. All the doctors I know seem to get paid a fair amount. Teachers think they don't get paid enough but I know of at least one teacher who thinks it's just because the rest of them have never done anything else. This particular teacher worked in a few different jobs before becoming a teacher and he actually said that he'd never been better off and didn't understand why teachers moaned about pay so much. I'm not saying teachers don't do a good job and I can't say for certain if they are underpaid because I don't know what they do get paid but I think there are much lower paid jobs which are just as important. It's a bit difficult to say whoch jobs are the most underpaid because not everyone in the same profession will necessarily be paid the same, I don't personally know what a lot of professions do pay and it would also depend on the type of work and the amount of work done for a particular amount of money. Cleaners are underpaid, they're expected to do far more work in their allocated time than is physically possible and then they get minimum wage. People who work in care homes also do a very important job and don't get anywhere near as much as they deserve for that kind of job.
