Stressful jobs that pay badly; Producer

From CNN.Money

Film/TV producer
Karolyne Sosa's job isn't all glamor and glitz.

Median pay: $47,600
% who say their job is stressful: 78%

Getting started in film and television production often means running scripts, fetching coffee and being a go-between for others, all while staying out of the way. Big personalities and unforgiving deadlines undermine the glory of this behind-the-scenes gig.

Even being a film producer isn't as glamorous as it seems. Independent film producer Karolyne Sosa often does whatever it takes to get her projects done, whether that is cleaning a set before a shoot or forgoing her salary entirely so the money can go toward the production. "If you want to survive, you just have to swallow your pride," Sosa says.
