Thanksgiving’s Thankless Jobs

‘Tis the holiday season already you say? With malls already jam packed, and the lines at IKEA

around the corner, you have to be stuck in a cave to see that people are already in the full holiday mode. This week marks Thanksgiving, you know, when the Pilgrims had a late lunch with the Indians and then Hallmark turned it into a billion dollar 4 day weekend.

In honor of Turkey Day I wanted to bring to you 6 thankless jobs. You know, the ones that no one says too much about, but everybody needs them around to do the things you would rather not have to do. Not to say there is anything wrong with these jobs, just that they don’t always get the recognition they deserve. Below is our list of thankless jobs and links to their postings online on the Employment Jump into a new career, just before the holiday starts and you will have your whole family saying thank you this holiday season!

Janitors. The cleaner uppers of your messers.

Forklift Drivers. Sure they get to ride around in a cool little machine, but where’s the love for this construction hero?

Housekeepers. If you are on vacation this holiday, give some thanks for the nice ladies (and men) who keep your sheets in order and keep refreshing your towels. Job well done.

Telemarketers. Not sure anyone has ever said thank you to a telemarketer, but they do a heck of a job in their attempt to sell us just about anything under the sun.

Toll collectors. These are the gate keepers to another part of the highway. Always looking stylish in Hawaiian shirts, too. At least in certain parts of the state I guess.

The fry guy. Not only does this person make the best part of your value meal, they also gain a lifetime of learning experience. Thank you fry guy!

Happy hunting Orlando!
