Who is better “We” or “They”?As far as employment scenario is concerned I was wondering who is better, We - the educated middle-class people or They - the lower class uneducated people like maids, cooks and labourers. Below thoughts crossed my mind.
We are busy in safeguarding our existing jobs, nodding our head in front of our boss. We do not argue and do what is told as we know outside there is a mad competition for getting jobs. But they willfully deny the work if they don't like it and say goodbye to you. For them, there is no dearth of jobs.
We have to struggle to find jobs and clear multiple rounds of the interview while they can get a job in a flash. There are ample homes to employ maids, cooks and ample construction sites to employ labourers like a carpenter, plumber, painter, mason etc. No interview required.
We silently do the extra work given by our boss and also bear his criticism but if you give two extra jobs to a maid or a labourer or comment on their quality of work they will say "Sir, I will not come from tomorrow".
We need to inform without fail if we are absent from office but they are king and will go missing one day without any information. It's your duty to find out as to why they are absent.
We have to stay late at the office and sometimes work on a holiday if our boss demands it but they will never do it against their will even if we ask. They do not care.
Even if we are not satisfied with the salary we cannot leave the job before finding a new one. But they can afford to do so as they know there is ample work for them.
We face unemployment problem even in a big city but for them, they are unlikely to face it.
