  3. I wouldn’t count clergy – kind of a stereotype. I think clergy are administrators, so if you count them you should count school principals.

  8. salespeople are all emotion workers even if we don’t approve of the emotions they work with. Funeral directors are also high emotion/caring demand jobs. Does a care work job get defined as one having no other skills (e.g. if nurses do carework does that erase their other skills?) If not, then why not also count physicians or cabbies?
