The “pharmaceutical industry” has unseated the “federal government” as the most poorly regarded industry in America for 2019, that’s according to a national ranking by Gallup. Americans are more than twice as likely to rate the pharmaceutical industry negatively (58%) as positively (27%), giving it a net-positive score of -31.
Americans continue to give their highest ratings to the restaurant industry (No. 1) and the computer industry (No. 2), while the grocery industry (No.3 ); farming and agriculture (No. 4); and travel industry (No. 5) also rank near the top of the list.
Other industries that rank the top 10 “most well-regarded industry sectors in the U.S.,” include accounting, automobile, retail; real estate, and banking. Based on these findings as well as some of our observations, here are 25 of the most hated industries in America.
