I asked myself that very question not long ago. In Sweden the garbage men went on strike a few months back. It turned out that their employer wanted to change their routs so they would actually work around 8h a day instead of 6h. And as the strike progressed you learned that the 6h the garbage men worked actually gave them more money than the ~9h I work as an engineer. Sad but true.

I bet there alot of very smart and talented individuals with qualifications who ultimately end up doing these sorts of jobs and get stuck there because they don't get employed in their field of work straight away, or have quals that become obsolete etc... particularly with the younger people
