  •  There is no such thing as unskilled labor (6+ / 0-)

    People like to pretend that running a register is a brainless job and idiot can do.

    Well put any idiot in front of that register and see how long it takes them to figure shit out.

    And how many people here can count change back? I can, but I don't meat many under the age of 50 who can. I had an excellent boss who went out of her way to teach me. I was well into my 30s at that time.

    Digging a ditch--you have to have the strength and stamina to do it in the first place and to do it so that it's doesn't cave or fill in.

    It's amazing what we called unskilled labor in this country. It's an excuse to pay people crappy wages and pretend superiority to those who handle you food, your waste, your groceries and your kids.
