This is going to be a short and sweet writing. The 2008 Gallup Poll results which polled the average American concerning the subject of professional ethics in careers is out, and once again funeral directors have made the top list. I think, if memory serves, funeral directors have made this prestigious list for now over a decade.
The overall results of the Gallup Poll, which really focus in getting the opinions of the common ordinary folk, you know the Archie and Edith Bunkers of the world, who are the substance of the funeral profession, have concluded that Nurses literally shine in the public’s ethics opinion and Bankers have fallen from ethical grace in a big way – surprise of surprises.
Anyway here are the top ethical careers for 2008, in rank order:
3. High School teachers
4. Medical doctors
5. Police officers
7. Funeral Directors
Here are the bottom ethical careers for 2008, in rank order:
1. Labor union leaders
3. Business Executives/Bankers
4. Advertising executives
7. Car salespeople
Not surprisingly the career of “Anti-Funeral Muckraker” made neither list. Could it be that Archie and Edith Bunker are really not interested in the least concerning the anti-funeral career people? Might be possible, and just might be probable, anyway the Gallup Poll indicates this.
Anyway that is one old undertaker’s opinion. TVB
