'Dead End Job' is not in the dictionary. Prove me wrong by sending me a link showing us that it is. --Priceless Fturue (talk) 21:33, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I can't find many movies, video games or bands listed here on Wikipedia in the dictionaries either. What's your point? --85.131.105.89 (talk) 14:39, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Biased description[edit]

Why does this page include only lower paying low status jobs. It could also be argued that there are high paying dead end jobs, too. Hollywood is full of actors that make a lot of money but don't go anywhere. Consider, too, that the President of the United States, the highest office in the land is limited to only two terms. Where do you go from there that's higher? lol — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.232.177.237 (talk) 00:06, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

After President, one can easily make far more than the $400,000/year salary by becoming a professional speaker or an author. --2001:4898:80E8:ED31:0:0:0:5 (talk) 23:24, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
