Amazon.com description: Product Description: They clean up messes, take out the trash, and make sure water is safe to drink. In short, they do many things that, given the choice, most people would probably rather not do themselves. They bravely tackle tasks that would make some people gag. They are the janitors, wastewater engineers, trash collectors, and other unsung heroes who do the dirty work that keeps the world clean and safe. Gross Jobs explains what these people do and why in the world they do it. Interviews with working professionals shed light on some of these careers, and fascinating sidebars and activities throughout examine various gross jobs to help young readers decide if these jobs are right for them. Jobs covered include: biofuels manufacturer; crime scene investigator; exterminator; forensic anthropologist; forensic services director; infectious disease scientist; janitor; landfill manager; mortician; plumber; wastewater technician; wastewater treatment and collection supervisor; and, zookeeper.
