A Job Exists That Pays £100,000 To Replace A Single Lightbulb
There is a job that pays £100,000 to replace a single lightbulb. People are going crazy on social media because they heard of a job that pays up to £100,000 for doing something as simple as replacing a lightbulb.
If you have recently been considering quitting your work and would want a change of employment, why don't you take on the duty of replacing a lightbulb and get paid a whopping £100,000 for your efforts?
The position, just like everything else that appears to be too good to be true, does, in fact, come with a catch. In my time, I've had to change a few lightbulbs, but never anything quite like this.
Despite the substantial income, there is a constant'shortage of individuals' who select the job of Tower Lantern Changer, according to the TikTok video that was uploaded by Science8888. The video says that you may get $130,000 (£100,000) for replacing a lightbulb in the capacity of a Tower Lantern Changer.
The clip continues:
Actually, this is not a regular light bulb. Not everyone can do it either. This is a special job for high-altitude operations, replacing lightbulbs for signal towers over 600 metres high. This type of signal tower is different from ordinary tall towers. In terms of appearance it is built from a metal bracket - the higher the height, the thinner the bracket - and there are no protective measures, [climbers] relying solely on a rope to protect them.- Anonymous
So, what are the qualifications necessary to work as a tower lantern changer? It should go without saying that this is the first criterion. You can't be terrified of heights, so if you're the kind of person who volunteers to watch your friends' coats and bags while they ride rides at a theme park, this is not the right profession for you.
You also need to be physically fit since, according to the video on TikTok, it takes around three hours to climb from the bottom to the top of the 600-meter tower, with a round journey taking an incredible six hours.
Nearly 100 kilometers per hour is the maximum wind speed recorded at the very top of the tower. The video cautions that "if you don't grab it firmly, you'll just fall off," so pay attention.
Although the video suggests that you may make £100,000 working as a tower lantern changer, other websites provide information suggesting that salaries might vary.
According to Field Engineer:
Entry-level tower climbers with less than a year of experience often average $17 (£13) per hour on their role with under one year of experience. For those with more experience than that, they can expect to earn around $19 (£15) per hour- Field Engineer:
On Jooble, there are many job postings for the position of Tower Lantern Changer, one of which offers £16-35 ($20-44) an hour or £240-a-day ($301), and another of which offers up to £32 ($40) an hour.
Despite the fact that the rates are different, there is no ignoring the fact that it is still a fantastic sum, but wow.
People have been coming to the video in droves to express their admiration for the job role and to speculate on whether or not they would ever be able to accomplish it themselves.
