What is a "real" job?

Post by Philosophy Explorer »

Often heard and read about jobs not being real in a variety of ways. So this leads to asking what is it that makes jobs real?

Professional existentialist philosophers' jobs are real.

Professional ethics philosophers have unreal jobs.

Professional metaphysical philosophers have surreal jobs.

They all have jobs at McDonald's.

Real jobs are not imaginary and not illusionary. They pay real money. You have to work real hard at them. You can ine some job, in construction, and then real ine the same thing later.

What makes jobs unreal? Are there specific jobs that are not being real?

For example, multi-level jobs are often described that way.

Yes, but surely you mean something other than all jobs that aren't marketing positions. Really, what are you referencing?

Doesn't apply to me, but it does apply to you.

Jobs that don't serve a useful purpose to the jobholder and are hard to make a living from with poor/no benefits.

It is very interesting that you said "useful purpose to the jobholder because there are many jobs that have no purpose at all for the worker other than trading his time for their money. There's always a useful purpose to the employer, or they wouldn't pay anything for it. In that regard, low paying unreal jobs show how little the employer really respects the worker, making it even more dissatisfying for the worker and therefore not a real job that someone would want to have. The part about not being able to make a living goes along with the whole idea of a job being unreal. Do you have personal experience in this regard?

The internet is there for a purpose which many underutilize. It's great as a source of information which you can use to independently verify what I say.
