Depends on the trade, the company and the location (country.)

In some places, a ditch-digger becomes an Evacuation Specialist, his boss an Evacuation Leader, and his boss an Evacuation Manager.

Where I live, the crew that collects the trash and recycle stuff are known as Resourse Recovery Specialists.

The problem with this observation is folks don't stick around to see what the others have to do next after that one man gets out the hole. Laborers don't have a chance with everyone playing arm chair quarterback.  :roll:

I don't think being disrespectful/political belongs in a humour thread.  Please read the guidelines:

"Defamatory remarks
Do not use this site to make defamatory remarks about people or organisations. Apart from potentially causing damage to this site, it's cheap and nasty behavior. If you say something negative, ensure that it is factual and not speculative."

So you had nothing to say about the political cartoon on page 115, yet you comment on something so benign as to make yourself look foolish?

Boy these photos bring back memories. I started working in 1965 as a programmer on an IBM1440 mainframe, a full 8K later upgraded to 12K, it had 3 disk drives attached of 1MB each.

 Ditto!
And, having to use the 80 column pouch cards.  The cards were cut, then "re-cut" to verify. Also, we had to wire the printer board for the required print-out.

I worked with the smaller 96 columns card in the 1970s when operating a /3 only 32K ram for a couple of years, the console was a continuous paper typewriter, now seems good times.
