        I have a question for everyone in every country, id like to get the most honest answers...

        Is having a respectable job more important than the wages you are paid?

        For example... I went to college for 4 years studied and trained as an animal health tech, I received my certification, in my area those positions are filled so I ventured elsewhere I needed to pay my bills.. okay after all this time I got on the job training and have move my level up to management in a Walmart Neighborhood Market, im making a salary higher than what i'd make as a Animal Health tech, a position opened and I declined, staying at my current job, when I say im a manager at a walmart I don't get any respect lol as I would if I were to say im an Animal Health Tech.. another example, a trash man saying he works for a trash company to an insurance agent, the trash man makes more money, is steady and secure with income and is job protected through the union, an insurance agent is a respectable job, but the trashmans money is double his...

        I have been in that same position. I worked as a server while putting myself through school and made a lot of money, but always felt it was frowned upon. I am currently in law enforcement and make half the money I made then. Yes by society standards it is a more respectable job, but why? We put so much emphasis on our status, when in reality who cares.

        I guess it doesn't really matter what people say as long as you enjoy the job and get decent wages.

        As long as you don't have to worry about money and you are happy in your job, the status of that job is irrelevant imho.

        The most important thing is to enjoy the job; money is an important factor, of course and I think you shouldn't worry what people think about your job. Often they are miserable and they want to infect other people with their misery.

        Good question Imagination,

        We live in material world hence money plays one of the crucial roles in everyday life. So to answer your question back in a day i would have probably chosen better paid job over something i actually enjoyed doing but not making me enuff money.

        With that said I have to stress that i left university in 2006 ( law studies ) to pursue something i was back then just starting to know and like ( online marketing ).

        This was a risky move for me personally as if i finished the stuides i had a job waiting at my Dad's practice. But it was an easy choice for me as i never liked law much lol

        Thank you all for your replies, you are all right with the answers what does it matter to another person, money matters when it comes to paying the bills to most, being happy in your job does tie up with that, rarely have I found someone who steps down some knotches from a job, to be who or work the job they've trained to be for years... as for myself i'd rather have the disrespect making good money, then have the respect making half as I would...

        I do have to say...having a job any kind of job is respectful, trashman, burger flipper, janitor whatever...

        In reality it doesn't matter as long as you can support yourself and pay those bills but there definitely is a certain level of disrespect with some jobs. When I worked in retail it was the customers that were disrespectful. Oh you're just a cashier, stocker whatever but when I moved into banking, people were like oh you're a banker. Somehow it seemed more respectable. I still dealt with rude people. To be honest I'd rather ring up your toilet paper than say you've got insufficient funds!

        I'm a Registered Veterinary Technician as well, I really could care less what they pay me as long as my family and my four-legged kids are taken care of.  There is no retirement plan in the world that would make me deal with humans all day.
