Supervisors, proprietors and sales? Those jobs can all be high stress.

Is there a correct answer to this topic question, anniedt?

Are we talking overall deaths or per highest per workforce?

If overall I'm going with cops.
If per workforce I'm going fishers or timber cutters.

I'm pretty sure the answer is "Taxi Drivers", due to the robbery rate.
