    No. You did not. You win over me though.

    My favorite career is driving truck. On average didn't have to interface with anyone more than once a day, didn't have to interface with employer more than twice a day, had only about 10 minutes a day of paperwork, didn't have to kiss customer ass or pretend I care about what they think, didn't have to sell my soul like those in marketing do, when I wanted a vacation I'd simply quit for a month or two and do whatever the hell I wanted, spent 2 hours finding another job that payed better.



    It's awesome having a job that is in such high demand your ass gets kissed instead of the other way around. That's what the globalists want for you all, to lower the demand for your job until you're groveling like a slave for little or no wages.

    It's sad such a question needs asked.

    What you are describing has been going on thru-out my life-time...and thru-out history..
    I doubt if the world has known a day of peace since day one..
    But, what does all of this have to do with manufacturing and its place of being ??

    Not really. Note that JohnWOlin lists his Occupation: Machine operator (when not laid off), soon studying to be Power Plant Operator. He doesn't want a real job ether.

    I dont understand if everyone is being pious or not anymore. I quit. On a side note I was laid off due to tsunamis causing suppliers of suppliers trouble. Nothing that happened to our suppliers just the business. When I came back from a month and a half lay off I had a lot of work afterwards. As for power plant operating look it up. It pays incredibly well and is essentially a office job mixed with light physical labor.

    There seems to be an implication among the locals that working in an office, is not "real work" because someone somewhere, randomly decided that there's some arbitrary specification for what real work is.

    Me and "OhIsee.Then", happen to disagree completely with this rather mindless notion. While there are some clearly obvious examples of cushy office jobs (for a very brief time as a contract service employee, between contracts, I was told to answer the phone.... when the secretary was busy or at lunch. Most boring couple of weeks I had), most office jobs such as an engineer like OhIsee.Then, are not easy at all, and require lots of hard work.

    The idea that one job is 'real work' and another is 'not real' simply because one focuses more on physical movement, and the other focuses on mental ability, does not mean it is not a 'real work'.

    In fact, I would even suggest that all jobs, are 'real work'. Some require more, and others less, some physical, some mental, some repetitive, some dynamic. But they are all 'real work'.

    Regardless, we were not picking on you specifically. You just happen to chime in at the wrong time. It was Lord Tammerlain who was being snooty and arrogant.

    You didn't specify what you were designing - but to me the answer depends on how much of your time was spent making your design actually work instead of just doing CAD/calculations. For civil engineers that means spending at least one or two days a month walking project sites.

    I assure you keeping a machine running 24/7 and keeping it from exploding is indeed hard work that takes a lot of mechanical aptitude. I really don't care I got on that spiel as a result of the other guy saying anything produced in America comes from overpaid people.
