Walk in parts of Brooklyn, Portland and Pittsburgh, and find elegant cocktails, barbers and occasional butchers, with young college graduates. To facilitate the segment of today’s urban economy, jobs were once again reckoned the state of semi-annual joblessness in occupations of glamor, says sociologist Richard Ocejo.

In his new book, “Masters of Art: Old Jobs in the New Urban Economy,” M. Ocejo examines the forces driving the revival of professions as a butcher and waiter among the young urban middle class. A similar dynamic works with a handful of other jobs, including craft beer, the bookbinder, furniture maker and fishmonger.

The Department of Labor states that between 2014 and 2024, the number of waiters and hairdressers in the United States will increase by 10 percent. 100, while butchers will see an increase of 5 percent. 100, compared to a 7% job growth for professions in the same period. The average salary for these jobs was less than $ 30,000 per year in 2016.

Millennia are drawn to these professions, in part as a reaction to “the ephemeral of the digital age,” says Ocejo, a professor of sociology at John Jay University of Criminal Justice and the City University of New York Graduate Center.

Like many of today’s most publicized jobs in areas such as information technology and financial services, these trades “are based on the use of hands, with real tools and materials, to provide a specific product Tangible, “he said.

To attract young people with college degrees and other options in the job market, jobs usually have an element of performance, according to M. Ocejo. In most of the Masters of Craft races, workers interact closely with clients, often in a public context, where their skills and knowledge can be admired. Therefore, it is unlikely that certain manual positions like the electrician and the plumber, experiencing the same “revaluation,” he said.

Unlike real estate gentrification, where the arrival of wealthier people moves low-income residents into a neighborhood urbanites do not usually move workers into more established companies in the same industry, said M. Ocejo.
Whole animal fashion of a butcher does not grow the local boucherier said, as it is likely “closed long ago, when the Italians moved.” And it does not harm halal butchers in any neighborhood. These shops serve a different clientele.

“They have created a niche that did not exist before, and operate in parallel but very, very separate ways” with preexisting companies, said M. Ocejo.

But aesthetics play a key role in the ideal of craftsmanship: waiters with leagues and handlebar mustaches tattooed butchers carving an unusual cut of meat-Mr. Ocejo said that jobs tend to attract people from similar cultural backgrounds, creating a barrier to others.

“It’s very difficult, if you come from a working class or a minority to get one of these jobs, which would give you higher salaries, opportunities for contacts and a more interesting job,” he said. “It’s a challenge for these companies to be more inclusive and not just hire people like themselves or part of their social network.”

But there is more than just the efficiency these characters play. That’s what he did with them. They are given a purpose. They put on a mission – keep in mind, it’s a mission they are completely ill-equipped to deal with – but in their empty little heads, brimming with delights of magnitude, they are experts.

I will never forget – despite my misty casually recall abilities – Burn after reading the film, especially the silly smile, Pitt turns on his face before receiving a shot, or Lieutenant Aldo Raine Bastardos without glory and his impeccably inept approach Italian (Goar -lah-mee). And although it can rightly be argued that the pikey rapture is not an obstacle – as turns out to be quite the plot demon at the end – that Pitt acts as one in the film should be classified for the League of Extraordinary Gentle-idiots.

In the war machine, the new political satire of director David Michod, who is also in the process of broadcasting the best film of Netflix, Pitt plays General Stanley McMahon, four stars, based on general Stanley McChrystal. It is, like the characters I mentioned earlier, an absolute caring. But not in the traditional sense.

As these characters, general McMahon idiosyncrasies – an exaggerated accent, and the most memorable commandment course (you’ve read well) of Captain Jack Sparrow Johnny Depp. But under the outer Memo, which is, like Chad Burn after reading, Aldo the Apache Damn bastards, a man completely out of his element, controlled – behind his back – by larger (and much smarter) organisations.

McMahon sent to Afghanistan at the end of the war – which, according to most, advertising was a complete nightmare – to the end. The whole operation has the appearance of an elaborate crisis management exercise, with experts in communication, professional relationship with the media, and not, as would have been the case, a large-scale reconstruction of a nation destroyed by drugs and the violence. Imagine if Salman Khan after the revolving door failures he was involved in, instead of hiring professionals and launched his organisation Being Human, was simply sending his Shera trusted body protector to hit someone silently so stupid as to be a challenge.
