Manual jobs are also useful

I went to a petrol station to pump petrol into my car. There were a few attendants, mostly elderly, who helped motorist in this task.

There was a time in the past, when the government encouraged self service. This was a bad idea.

Most motorists are not familiar with operating the controls in the pumps. The attendants are there every day, and know what to do. It makes life better for the motorists.

It also creates useful jobs for our elderly, and keeps them fit and healthy.

We should get away from the mindset of eliminating all jobs. We need to create useful jobs for the people. It can be manual work and they have to be treated with respect, and paid decent wages.

We should reduce the people involved in unproductive work, and put them to useful work in serving people, and making life better for others.
