Shame assignment

I used to assign shame
To certain occupations
Like being a taxi driver or conductor :
It’s not the ideal job
Often the bottom of the food chain
Not often educated
Sometimes working from filthy taxi ranks
Breaking a lot of traffic rules as they go.
And yes, some of them are douche bags
But so are a lot of government employees with respectable jobs;
In pristine clean offices,
Regular pay checks and plenty of perks.
My perspective is changing,
Whether or not a job is dignified or not lies not only in the description of the job itself
But how the worker does her work.
A crappy work ethic and just not caring- that’s a shame, no matter what you do.
