Ask any child who they wish to be when they grow up and you would get an answer from the same range, a pilot, an astronaut, a lawyer, a doctor etc. These are the professions that are assumed to be noble and prestigious. People believe thay if they, as adults wish to gain respect in the society, they need to be engaged in a profession that the society seems respectable. No child ever says that they wish to grow up to be a plumber, a handyman or an electrician, because these are considered to be second class professions. However it is these professions only that keep the wheels of a society going smooth and well. Simple google searches like handyman near me in Cherry Hills Village, CO show how much they mean in the society?
How are jobs such as these important in society?
On the forward front, lawyers, doctors, police officers keep the society going. However these professionals would not be able to do their job if what they consider to be inferior professions did not exist. Lawyers need their offices to be in top shape for them to do their job properly. Doctors would not be able to treat their patients if there are faults in the hospital building. If there are any leaks, a faulty appliance, or any other problem we are quick to call an electrician, a plumber or a handyman in general to fix the problem. These professions do not get the respect they deserve at all.
Many people assume that such skilled professions that do not require a professional course training, often do not pay well and leave people starving. However that is the exact opposite of the reality. Professions such as those of plumbers and electricians often get paid more when they begin to work than what middle level practicing lawyers and doctors make. Every profession that exists has its own up sides and down sides. However it is our responsibility as a society to pay equal respects to each and every profession. Our society is able to function when all professions do their job smoothly.
