Longshoreman load and unload cargo at docks and shipyards using cranes and other heavy machinery. Although longshoremen do not need to have college degrees, they need to be unionized in a harbor workers’ union. Longshoremen work in all kinds of weather condition and need to be in very good physical condition because the job requires manual labor. Although the job starts off at around $20/hour, those with experience can make up to $55 an hour, well above $100,000. Often longshoremen are offered overtime in addition to their regular hours and can therefore get paid much more on top of their already-impressive regular salary.
