Many people work hard every day at jobs that are often ignored. In honor of the month of giving thanks, some of these occupations have been featured on this blog each Thursday. If you work in any of these positions, please know you are appreciated.
CNA’s are rewarded for working long hours by being given a lot of grunt work. They may have to do less desirable jobs but they do invaluable work. Thanks to CNA’s who work at hospitals, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, and other places.
People in the janitorial field are often ignored as they go about their business. They keep our environments clean and safe. Make sure to say thank you next time you pass someone who is hard at work cleaning.
School, city, and long-distance bus drivers provide a significant service. They take us where we need to go safely. We thank all bus drivers for the wonderful work you do daily.
If it wasn’t for all those who work behind the scenes at airports around the world, we would not be able to fly places quickly and safely. These amazing people include: baggage handlers, ground crews, refueling persons, airport maintenance, cargo agents, air traffic controllers, traffic managers, flight dispatchers, sky caps, food services personnel, ramp agents, equipment operators, TSA agents, sky marshals, mechanics, and more. Thank you for all the hard work you do that is rarely seen by the public.
Chefs and cooks who work in hotels, restaurants, schools, grocery stores, food trucks, and many other places and keep us well-fed. They have developed skills and most work in uncomfortable conditions but provide us with a much-needed service. Thank you for caring for each of us through our stomachs.
Each of these jobs may be often ignored but they are very much appreciated. Thanks for all you do.
