In defending their large salaries, pensions and early retirements (say, at age 50), government safety workers cite the dangers of their jobs. But U.S. Labor Department data for 2009 show other kinds of jobs are far more dangerous, according to MarketWatch. For example, the rate of fatal occupational injuries for farmers and ranchers is 38.5 per 100,000 full-time workers. The rate is 4.4 for firefighters and 13.1 for police and sheriff's patrol officers. The rate for aircraft pilots and flight engineers is 57.1 and for fishing workers 200. The average rate for civilian workers is 3.3.
