Teachers lead with germiest work environments

As cold and flu season approaches, the WSJ blog has identified the occupations most likely to encounter germs. As expected, teachers lead the list with twenty times the germs per square inch of attorneys who have the cleanest offices. Teachers’ phones are the main culprit, accountants have the dirtiest desks and you don’t want to touch a banker’s computer mouse or door knob. Women’s offices are dirtier than men’s but are less likely to have MRSA.
