I am not surprised to see California list Farmworkers. I see them working everyday. Nobody in my house holds that job unless you count me tending to my small garden!

Cute question. Hardly any lockers left in Oregon. No one in my family is. A friend's husband was killed logging

Does it count if I have a friend who is an OT?

No one I know personally in Colorado. How I *wish* I had family or friends who were space scientists!

Phil Plait (@badastronomer on Twitter), astronomer & the very best communicator-to-the-public of astronomy & related sciences I know, does live in Colorado, near Boulder I think. I follow him on various social media but I certainly don't know him as a friend.

MO is locker room attendants. That's an odd one.

At the turn of the century, one of the most popular jobs in Seattle was seamstress, in fact, there were far more seamstresses than sewing machines.

That is because Lou Graham, the most successful Madame, had all of her ladies put down "seamstress" as there occupation on all government forms, including the census.

Sometimes, people's answers are not quite accurate on these surveys.

No motorboat operators here. I didn't know that was a career.

People often forget that CA is the top agricultural producing state in the country.
