It's a dirty job, but somebody needs to do it.

A job is a job is a job. When you don’t have one and you can’t find one what are you going to do? You got laid off or your factory closed and your unemployment is running out, what choices do you have? You are willing to work, but there just doesn’t seem to be anything you’re trained to do, where do you go?

There jobs out there, but because no one wants to do them. The work is hard and dirty, the job requires you to move, or the pay is lower than what you had before. Just remember “it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it”. For years we have been told that the jobs being done by illegal aliens were the ones no one else wanted to do. Maybe those are the jobs that you need to look at.

The trash needs to be picked up, the crops need to be harvested, and the hotel rooms need to be cleaned. Someone has to wash cars at the carwash or load and unload the trucks that move goods around the country. Believe me the food in the store didn’t grow in cans and boxes, it got there because somebody grew the crops and milked the cows. Somebody worked in the plant that turned the beef, pork, and chicken into the food you could cook and eat.

The jobs that leave you sweaty and dirty will always be there if you are willing to do them. They may not be glamorous, but they will always be there. Any job is better than no job when you can’t pay the bills or put food on the table.
