You might be wondering that the maid in your house might not be that much educated still she comes under category of local handyman in Uptown, but if you have ever noticed that whatever she does, she does it with perfection (not all but many). It is true that above mentioned requirements are necessary but the most important thing that matters is skill and experience. These workers work for years doing a same type of job but at different places due to which their experience increases and due to the change in environment and places they face no problem in accommodating at new places.
In short, they can be called Jack of all trades, master of none, but that doesn’t mean they are not good at different things. Handymen jobs are not high paying jobs, but it depends on the area and locality where they are working. As it is well said that a work is a work no matter what type of work it is unless or until it serves the purpose and it makes you happy about it. There are certain taboos regarding handymen workers especially when it comes to the ones which are cleaners or sweepers, that the belong to low caste which is not acceptable as they’re doing it for their survival. It takes a lot to be this much experienced and that too in a wide range of varieties.
