Who hasn’t dreamed of being a rock star? Up on stage, with microphone in hand and thousands of adoring fans cheering your every move.  Sounds like quite a life and apparently it is for singers of all sorts.  According to a new study out from MyPlan.com that looked at job satisfaction, singers top the list as being happiest with their jobs. What’s not to love?! On the other hand those who deal with all your fan mail, the mail clerks and mail machine operators, excluding those who work for the U.S. Postal Service, are the least happy.  Maybe you can get them free tickets to a show!
