Jobs We Still Need for Economic Growth (And Happiness)
Today, the Labor Department reported that the U.S. economy added a healthy 223,000 jobs last month. But compared to other previous months, it isn’t that many. And with only a slow growth in wages, the economy still needs work... To help out our politicians and economist, I’ve decided to come up with a list of jobs we still need more of. These are some really awesome jobs that make people happy/will make people happy. Here are a few:

1. Pixar Animator

Look how happy this guy looks! Everyone deserves to be this happy creating something awesome. The movies themselves create so much happiness. (as previously demonstrated by @danidee: The Five Stages We Go Through When We Watch Pixar Movies card). Now just let more people do that. Cool.

2. Baristas

Because I love coffee and so does the rest of the world. Also, baristas are so happy all the time. Happier Jobs, Happier Nation. Duh.

3. Optometrist (Eye Doctor)

Anyone that’s been to the doctor, knows what I’m talking about. So you get a bit of air puffed in your eye, you get to try new lenses, and then you leave the eye doctor seeing a whole new world. It’s the best thing. I think optometrists have special magic powers: the best job ever.

4. Spaceship Pilot

Like a regular pilot pilot, but he has a SPACESHIP. This one is just too cool.

5. These people.

I don’t know it’s a real job or not. But I see them around with their hoops and they are so happy. America should make it a job.
You are welcome America. Now if we can think of other jobs to add, then we would be a stronger (and happier) nation. Now that’s something worth smiling about.

These are awesome. Can I be a food tester while simultaneously watching Netflix? I'd be making so much money in my spare time! lol

Food tester is a pretty good one @allischaaff. You could create a new job along the lines of “Food and Film pairing.” That should be a thing.
