If you think your job stinks, things could probably be worse. According to the job-hunting site CareerCast.com, these 10 jobs are the worst in America. Factoring in aspects such as work environment (including emotional and physical components of the job), income, growth potential, job outlook, and stress factors such as deadlines, travel and job competitiveness, these positions are statistically high on requirements and low on monetary rewards, but could still be good fits for some people, says CareerCast.com Publisher Tony Lee.

"You could argue that our rankings don't think much about job satisfaction, and it's true. We're looking analytically," Lee says. "People basically say, 'Yeah, the job sucks, but I still love it, and I still want to do it.' That's fine. That's not what we measure."

Even if you don't love your job, there's a way out. These jobs also offer skills that can be transferred to other professions. Here are CareerCast.com's worst jobs of 2013.
