Labor pains

Good honest work: I have heard that many times and any work done honestly should be considered good. However, it seems that some folks still look down on folks who do the work. Should you get the chance, take a job at minimum wage and see how you are treated by others. Recently, I took a job cleaning a bank. The folks who work in the bank have no idea what I do otherwise and it is amazing how I get treated. Now not all the folks are snooty. Some are friendly; however, there are those who clearly do not want me around when they are working. Hence, I have been notified to wait until all the employees have departed. Why is that I wonder? Should I just brush it off and not worry about it or is it something else indeed. Let's just say I walked into the bank wanting to deposit ten thousand dollars. I wonder how I would be received. My bet is that I would be escorted into the branch manager's office. I know I would because some years ago I had that very experience. How things have changed or have they always been like this? I would guess the more you make means you deserve more respect than say a ditch digger or a bank cleaner.
