Last week, we were talking about the most useless University degrees in Montreal and we could see that this was a topic our readers were very interested in. It makes sense after all, you don't want to invest years of your life studying only to wind up in a dead end career. Most people go to university because they know it can lead them to better paying jobs.
Well if it's money you're after, we can tell you which career paths to avoid.
These are the lowest paying job in Canada in 2015:

1. Sewing Machine Operator - $19,760
Luckily most of you wouldn't even know where to begin to get this kind of job.
2. Cashier - $20,700
Your only hope is to start a retirement fund by stealing one quarter a day, everyday when no one is watching.
3. Ironing/Pressing - $20,700
Is it any wonder that the most annoying chores also make the worst paying jobs?
4. Artisans - $21,320
I guess that depends on out good your artisanship is. (It's a word, I looked it up.)
5. Bartender - $21,000
The average is probably lower due to all the bartenders who work in crappy bars. Though I'm sure there are plenty of bar tenders that make a good living.

6. Harvesting Labourer - $19,750
What do you expect? This isn't exactly steady work.
7. Service Station Attendant - $19,750
Sorry, but you'll just have to dream a little bigger.
8. Food/Beverage Worker - $22,000
All the bad parts of being a waiter and you don't even make any tips.
9. Food Counter Attendant/Kitchen Staff - $19,750
That's why my high school lunch-lady was always pissed off.
10. Babysitters, nannies, and parent’s helpers - $19,750
Any job a 12 year old is qualified for probably won't be the most lucrative career choice.
