    oh trash collector...or "sanitation engineer."

    That job pays well in the US.
    In Sweden too. Specialists at my job (governmental) have the same pay (some even less) than trash folk around here, it's hilarious haha, but I guess it wouldn't be popular otherwise.

    Hedge fund manager is looked down upon. People don't understand how important money management skill is until your nation suffers a huge economic crash and then it needs to beg JP Morgan to unfreeze the economy by granting huge bailouts all over the place.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    Seems this is everywhere the case. Garbage collectors in my country earn a lot, and its near impossible to get one of the jobs if you don't have the right connections.

    Also, doesn't take a lot to be a sex worker? Being a sex worker is functionally the equivalent of any freelance or gig job in terms of self-employment. And being self-employed is by no means 'easy'. But hey, because it's primarily a female profession engaging in an activity you find distasteful it must mean it's objectively a 'lower ranked' profession, right?

    Y'all are talking a lot of shit about garbage collectors for people that like to call cities in developing countries 'dumps'.
    'Sex work' is a huge umbrella term from porn star to cam girl selling snapchat sessions.

    Adults need to let adults be adults. And Demonizing sex works opens the door for criminal elements to move in and exploit people.

    At the same time some people get weird about 'sex work accepatance'.

    Youre not a whore if you enjoy your work, and who cares if you are?

    Not every wants to be part of that world so let them be if they don't. Don't take it offensive if someone is modest in their ways.

    We live in a culture that wants to say it's not feel of prudes then mocks someone who pays an escort or the escort themselves. People who have way too much time to be worry about what other consenting adults do.

    If it's honest pay for honest work it should never be uncool. If you're coming from a upper middle class WASPy type situation you may look down on the blue collar work and consider it beneath you but it should never be seen as uncool. Someone has to mow your lawns and dig your ditches in your perfectly manicured HOA managed white picket fenced gated neighborhoods.
