Though it's certainly not fair, some of the most physically challenging (and dangerous) jobs pay the worst salaries. At least that's what Careercast.com's list of the worst jobs for 2011 reports.

The list reflects the parts of the economy hardest hit by the recession. In other words, it wasn't a good time to go into construction last year and it's even worse this year.

Which jobs fall to the bottom? Check them out below:
