    Post Unskilled Dead-end Jobs

    I'd like to do an informal survey here that would help me with a project I'm undertaking, and I was therefore wondering if any of you could submit an answer or two.

    I'm curious what occupations most people on this website would consider bottom of the barrel, dead-end, and unskilled for the likes of a middle-aged man. Therefore, I'm not looking for the typical part-time teenager jobs like flipping burgers, stocking shelves at the supermarket, or waxing cars down at the car wash. I'm looking for jobs that are dirty, physically demanding, that are generally considered manual labour type occupations where one would see a lot of middle aged people engaging in such employment. I thought originally of factory work, but most factories now these days are robotically computereised or they moved onto India, Romania, or China. I also thought of construction work too, but most of these occupations consist of skilled trades, not unskilled jobs. Help me out! Think of a few different answers and submit them. Remember, these occupations generally should be unskilled, low-status, dirty and physically demanding in one way or another. Thanks!

    Not that I'd think differently of someone doing these jobs. This is what I consider unskilled and middle aged jobs.

    Telemarketer
    Car salesman
    Custodian
    Truck Driver (arguable)
    Welfare mom
    Miner
    Fisherman (arguable)

    I respect anyone who isn't afraid to get dirty, risk their life or face ridicule for working a certain 'low class' job. All the places I have worked have been 'unskilled' jobs. I only work so I can have enough money to travel every once in awhile, at this point in my life I don't care about 'getting ahead.' Ahead of whom? What is the point of collecting a lot of wealth and possessions? I see greater wealth in having interesting experiences, and I choose this as my purpose in life.

    Our society is built by manual laborers, without such people the world of the high class snob would be empty of its meaningless status symbols. Who is going to build the gay little luxury cars they drive, some uppity jerk in a suit? Who is going to stomp on the grapes of their imported wines, a bitch in Prada shoes?

    Workers of the world, unite!

    Well said. Words like that could Inspire a Revolution.

    Perhaps there will be a Great Proleterian Revolution and the working class will get to enslave their Masters instead of the other way around.

    Post Re: Unskilled Dead-end Jobs

    Well said Ig, but I'm not looking for a bloody political manifesto, I'm simply trying to collect some data here. You'll have to trust me on this one, but I am doing this research for all the right reasons, and the final outcome of my work I hope will ignoble working class men and women of the world and not mock them. However, I need some empirical data first and foremost to do that, so how's about a few answers for my survey, kid.

    Thanks,

    Ted

    -Truck Loader
    -Automotive Lube Technician
    -Muffler Mechanic (Silencer Fitter)
    -Fork-Lift Operator
    -Garbage Truck Driver
    -Machine Feeder
    -Assembly Line Worker
    -Production Welder
    -Drill Press Operator
    -Asphalt Raker

    Keep 'em coming, please!

    Hey, I made a lot of money, once, as a telemarketer --- well, selling stock over the phone, but it's the same thing.

    Wal-Mart Greeter is probably the bottom. Or perhaps admitting you are an Assistant Manager at Taco Bell if you are in middle age. I personally don't like truck drivers and would never stoop that low (unless I needed the money, of course).

    What do you have against truckers?
