What’s more important: Well paying jobs or meaningful jobs?
The answer would depend on circumstances. Many a dad has worked at a job he did not prefer because he wanted to provide for his family (sometimes only to have children grow up and mock him for that choice). Teaching a very young person about this concept gave them the chance to make a choice for a meaningful job before they started a family. Of course, the social climate today is very different and the face of society reflects fewer dads in kids lives at all, but that's a different topic. After giving this a bit of thought, I would have to say that the definition of meaningful might be different for different people.
Well . . . the best would be a meaningful job that is well paying. I like the concept RTalloni shared. I think meaningful is very hard to define. Not giving it any thought and reacting to it I think of meaningful in the context of the differences of doctor and factory worker. One usually thinks the job of a doctor is more meaningful. But, is it?
Of course, if I would write sentences in proper English they would make more sense. Can I blame spell check? The late hour? Nope, just my failure to proof correctly. Any old ways, your example is a good one. Indeed, is the doc's job more meaningful?
In the current economic climate most people would probably simply be grateful to be employed. We all need to put food on the table and pay the bills. But education gives people wider choices - with a chance that they might reach the Happy state of being in a job that is both fulfilling and well paid.
