This month, July 2010, Readers Digest has once again released its annual findings of the most trusted professions voted by Australians. The Top 40 results are very similar to previous polls and probably as expected. Leading the way of the most trusted professions are Ambulance Officers, Firefighters, Nurses and Pilots. No real surprises there I guess although Doctors at Number 5 may be under pressure in the next poll if the events of this week are any indication.
At the other end of the list the names once again remain fairly familiar. At 40 Telemarketers came in last in the most trusted profession followed at 39 by Car Salespeople and Politicians in at 38. Ouch, that’s got to hurt being a telemarketer or car salesperson and being voted behind Politicians. At 37 comes Sex Workers just edging out……you guessed it, Real Estate Agents at number 36.
