Besides the paid mosquito counter who allows hundreds of the biting bugs to land on him in order to calculate where insect controllers need to spray, here's a job you'd love to hate.
A beer taster in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was awarded $49,000 after he alleged that the brewer he worked for did not provide health measures to keep him from becoming an alcoholic.
It seems his job was to drink up to 25 glasses of beer a day during his 8-hour shift. OK, so they were small glasses.
But here's the kicker: At the end of each shift, he received a bottle of beer for a job well done.
Talk about perks!
