Coffin-making and 3 other jobs that depend on people dying

Death may not be wished even for one's worst enemies. Most people may go far for anything but draw the line at wishing or working towards the death of other people.

But as with almost everything, one person's fall may be the cause of another's rise. And even death, as feared as it is, is the cause of employment for some specialists.

We do not think about this everyday but a simple reflection yields the truth: someone or some people need to die for other people to make legitimate money.

YEN.com.gh reflects on some of these professions that revolve around death.

1. Coroner

The coroner's job is limited to determining who the deceased was and how, when and where they came by their death.

Whether in a suspected crime, suicide or death by natural causes, a coroner needs their dead body to put their skills and knowledge to use.

2. Mortuary workers

The job list of mortuary workers range from coroners to individuals who bath and groom the deceased before burial.

Recently, YEN.com.gh reported that the Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana (MWAG) threatened a strike action. Whatever their concerns, their withdrawal of service will affect health conditions.

3. Hearse drivers
