Just a Thought

Cleaning the streets. Collecting garbage. Keeping bathrooms clean. Washing dishes. Watching apartment buildings for tenants.

These are just a few of the essential services I see seniors doing in Hong Kong.

Many of them did not have a good education and have been stuck in menial jobs all their lives which is why they've had to continue working in what should be their golden years.

What happens after this generation of people pass away? Who is going to do these unenviable tasks?

For many years Pakistanis and even Englishmen have come to Hong Kong helping to build the city's infrastructure.

But who will keep the streets clean and do jobs that Hong Kong people look down on? It's not going to be mainlanders or Filipinos.

It's just an observation, but I'm wondering who will do these jobs in the future.
