Refuse collectors breaking apart

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Figures from the Swedish governmental institution tasked with keeping track of all possible statistics, Statistics Sweden, show that refuse collecting/recycling is the most common profession among people who divorce. In 2007 (the latest year for which we have complete statistics), over 7% of Swedish married refuse collectors/recyclers divorced.

Not much analysis has been presented with this news, but it is noted that among the top ten, nine professions are blue-collar jobs, with pilots and captains as the only white-collar profession (claiming the runner-up spot).

What we all crave to know of course is what it is about trash work that puts such hard strain on marriages. If anyone knows, do share!
