(No prostitution is not exactly legal everywhere here, but in some areas both females and males [street-walkers] do it anyway and just hope they don’t get caught) Well, I am sure MANY jobs could be listed even those in fast-food or grocery store cashier, but I think they chose just a few that had a better counterpoint:

better decision from telemarketing:
What To Do Instead: Public Relations Specialist
Turn your talkative nature and ability to sell into a career as a public relations specialist. According to the Department of Labor, this career might involve writing press releases that influence the public to look upon your client or business favorably. Growth rate is projected to hit 21 percent from 2010 to 2020, says the Department, and the median pay, at $53,190, is more than double that of a telemarketer.
For public relations specialist positions, employers typically want candidates with a bachelor’s degree in a field like journalism, public relations, communications, business, or English, says the Department.
Career to Avoid #2: Door-to-Door Salesperson
You might have been a first-rate Girl Scout Cookie peddler, but you’re no longer a cute kid looking for a couple bucks. Working as a door-to-door salesperson might mean more doors slammed in your face than happy customers.
Steer Clear Meter: This entry-level job literally has you constantly knocking on doors, or standing on the street to sell people products, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. If haggling with people or constantly being on the go isn’t your thing, then being a door-to-door salesperson probably isn’t for you.
“Door-to-door sales is a lot of work for little reward when you look at commission pay outs,” says Lions. “Better to do a regular sales job instead.”
On top of that, there’s very little growth opportunity, according to the Department of Labor, with a seven percent decline in jobs from 2010 to 2020, and a low median salary of $22,160.
What To Do Instead: Human Resources Manager
Far more promising than going door-to-door is going cubicle-to-cubicle, not to sell but to interact with employees as a human resources manager. These in-demand professionals recruit potential employees, expand staff, and solve internal conflicts, says the Department. What’s more, they make a median pay of just under $100K a year, with the field set to grow at about 13 percent from 2010 to 2020. Lions attributes this growth to the need for companies to expand as we move out of the recession.
So how do you prepare for this career? You’ll need a bachelor’s degree in human resources or business administration, says the Department.
Prostitution in the United States is illegal in 49 out of the 50 states and is usually classified as a misdemeanor. Each state has the power to determine the legality of prostitution in that state. Nevada is the only state which allows some forms of prostitution in some of its counties.
Nevada allows licensed brothels only in some rural counties. Only 8 counties have active brothels. All forms of prostitution are illegal in Clark County (which contains the Las Vegas–Paradise metropolitan area), Washoe County (which contains Reno), Carson City, Douglas County, and Lincoln County. The other counties allow brothels, but some of these counties currently have no active brothels.
Prostitution is considered by some US governments to be a public order crime, a crime that disrupts the order of a community. It was at one time considered to be a vagrancy crime.
As with other countries, prostitution in the United States can be divided into three broad categories: street prostitution, brothel prostitution, and escort prostitution.
