    Are we loosing respect for honest labour?

    Watching our fencer, I sensed the experience he had. His work was well planned, organised, and carried out with passion. This was a man who not only knew how to build fence but who loved to build the fences. When he would come out after a hard day's work, covered with black dust, he would only say"Really good weather for it" with a long smile. Unfortunately he can't find an apprentice to pass his wonderful experience. "Nobody want to work," he says sadly:"The dignity of honest work is lost."

    i think that labour type jobs are considered to be below too many people these days. i too have a hard time finding people that want to do a hard days work because many say that they didn't go through all the schooling just to build or repair houses. i partially blame the education system for this because it is pushed that by getting a good education you can get high paying office type jobs. who needs grade 12 english or math to do an honest days work.
