What are some jobs you couldn't live without people doing?
Are you grateful for these people in your life? I think we should show more gratitude for the people who do the essential jobs in our lives.
I have always been immensely grateful for farmers and grocers, cause I don't want to hunt my own food. I think it's messed up the US doesn't have a National Farmers Day. We should definitely show farmers more respect.
I'm also grateful for trash and sanitation workers, cause you don't know how awesome they are until you have to haul away your own trash. Trashmen do all the dirty work we need in society. Sewer workers, too.
I'm also grateful to the people that allow us to have indoor plumbing and air conditioning (not that my place has AC.) Plumbers, electricians, and HVAC guys are also awesome.
Also want to add in parcel deliverymen (UPS, FedEx) who bring us our Amazon packages, and postal workers as well.
Someone else mentioned commercial truck drivers as well. Yeah, they're important too. And as an extension to them, shipping dock crews and importers/exporters for trade.
Doctors are important for other people, but I've never needed one and have never relied on any doctors in my life. Most of human civilization has also not had modern doctors either, so I'm iffy on this one.
Notice 99.9% of all the vital jobs in society are done by men. There's a lot of jobs that are unnecessary or pointless in society, though. Like tanning salons and vape shops. And well, Hollywood writers right now, which is why the Writer's Strike can go on forever, for all I care.
And while I may not be BLM trash, I couldn't care less about cops. They've never helped me in my life and the US has the second amendment, so there's that. Police are probably vital for society, but not in my experience. They're there more to hurt people (guilty or not) more than actually help innocent people, IMO.
