  1. Janitorial or maid service. Or to use the more politically correct term: “Maintenance Engineers”. Makes that rather lowly job sound grand, doesn’t it? My father was a janitor. He worked his a$$ off too and rarely got any recognition or kudos for his good work. He’d probably have been embarrassed by the attention or thought the compliment giver a bit of a fool if someone had praised him. He seemed to think of his job as something that needed doing, rather than something to get praise for.

    1. My Dad was a machinist but when he was laid off once he was a janitor at a high school. It was a tough job that he did with grace and never complained about. I agree with you here…it absolutely not given the recognition it deserves.


    2. I agree, janitors are widely overlooked. And your father’s humbleness is priceless, even to this day. His work made other people’s life this much easier, even if he thought so little of his job… Thank you for sharing 🙂 xx


  2. Stay at home moms. I was one for 20 years and I do not think that the amount of work/energy that goes into this job is even close to being recognized or understood. It’s the most rewarding and the most challenging job. Partially because it’s just you and your kid/kids seeing what goes into each day and partially because there is really no feedback or acknowledgment. Cooking, cleaning, managing the money/home, educating, being a nurse, a therapist and often times a psychic (and so much more). It’s a never-ending 24/7 balancing act. There are no ‘atta boys’ or pay raises or vacations (or days off!). You don’t get promoted and you don’t get to put your experience on your resume. AND if you’re good at your job, you work your way out of it. I would not change my choice to be a stay at home mom for so many years, but I do wish people understood that it’s not all sitting around watching tv or playing outside. It’s a choice and it’s not always easy. ❤


  3. I’m confused by your question……… All jobs get recognition,some more so than others of course. A job can be viewed as either positive or negative and its importance can be viewed either small or large.
    A grave diggers job is generally viewed as undesirable but none the less a very important job.
    So you can have a small job that is very important and a big job that is viewed as being small… what Trump has done to the Presidency.
