Gold Stacker

Cool Jobs @ National Park Service

The United States Bullion Depository - better known as Fort Knox - is not, as most think, the largest gold repository in the United States. That distinction belongs to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in lower Manhattan, where around $194 billion worth of the gold bars are stored.

Occasionally, those bars need to be moved, and there are people - called gold stackers - who do it. Each 27-pound bar has to be moved manually, and the repetitive strain is so significant that they work in teams so shifts can relieve one another.
