When I worked in Japan, they called those type of jobs 3K (kitsui, kiken, kitanai which roughly translated are hard, dangerous and dirty). A year or two or even a summer or so working at such jobs becomes a powerful motivator to do well in your next job so you don't go back.

Of course, the jag-offs who fill out the vast ranks of our underclass has no motivation to take them and get a start up the ladder.

On the other hand, my father was a field veterinarian when I was born and a college professor when he retired. He often told me that getting sprayed with a pile of cow crap on a 30 below Wyoming winter morning while performing his job was preferable to some of the faculty meetings that he had to sit through.

Your father was a funny guy and a shrewd observer of academia. I salute him! There was a Scottish author who wrote, in a series of books about a vet with a large animal practice, where cow crap on a cold morning just went with the job.
