Plain old fashioned human nature. We hate un-glamorous work. Safety and fire prevention are such. Any job that don't help someone look good, is not given enough attention. Fighting fire is so much more heroic but I don't think firemen want to do that if they can help it.

The tap in the bathroom became useless today. As usual it don't tell you ahead it wanted to quit.
Called Town Council to help. A plumber came. Brought him to the shop with me to buy this.
Then he got it fixed, and I gave him a very big tip because I imagine what he must have done to leave his country to come here to work.

Today is the first day of work for 2019. I received a Natgeo email and thought this pic looks familiar. The caption reads,
Every day, miners hike up Ijen’s 9,000-foot slopes under the cover of darkness before descending another 3,000 feet into the crater to mine sulfur or "devil's gold." Through the toxic fumes and heat, they chip away at the hardened blocks and carry 150 to 200-pound loads back up the crater twice a day, earning an average of five dollars per trip.
Without any effort at all these though just flowed - work is often dangerous to health.
In the animal kingdom, they often die looking for food before they could even look for a mate. In human society we often die slowly damaging our health doing the same even if you sit behind a desk all day or move about everywhere. The folks whose health are better are those with power of self determination without much responsibility.
