Labour intensive

Do you know what labour intensive means? It means jobs that require a lot of labour, manual and physical work such as kitchen helper, coffee stall helper, stall helper, chefs, plate collectors, cleaners, factory workers etc. Some call them blue collar workers. White collar workers are those that sit in the office and do paper work. Some people have no choice but to work in labour intensive industry because they are not very well educated. But no matter what jobs you hold, as long as that job brings in income and it's a decent job, it's ok. In my life, the only labour intensive job I have hold is being a flyers distributor when I just graduated from my college. I remembered that time I feel very happy cos it is the first time I earned my own income without any help from my parents. I also feel very fun because it's my first job. How about you? Do you still remember what is the first job you had after you graduated from school? Did you enjoy your job?

I remember my first job that comes with payslip is as data entry boy with a shampoo company, but the job scope include sorting through boxes of documents in their warehouse and also organizing those boxes. Wear shirt but everyday sweat like an oink. I think that is my most labor intensive job so far...

I think a stay at home mom is also labour intensive. We work 25 hours a day and never gets MC. Hehe.

My first job was straight after SPM, promoter at a local supermarket. Soooooo happy to be earning my own money :D

First job is always fun, coz we don't know anything, and just go with the flow.. My first job starts work at 8am, ends at 6pm, and Saturday from 8am-3pm! Insane? But I did not complaint, weird...

My first job was while waiting for my O level results. I worked for the biggest Korean construction company that built Penang Bridge. I had to work like a laborer using spade and wheelbarrow to collect cement samples daily to conduct tests. Those days I was so dark like African and muscular like a manhunt contest extant! Lol
