A thankless job by definition is simple; it is defined as a difficult or unpleasant job, that people do, and typically receives no recognition. Individuals or a career path that is overworked and underappreciated. When we think of a thankless job, we often consider farming, housekeepers, home healthcare workers, and caregivers. However, I would like to add another classification, CDL drivers, and more specifically snow pushers, or snowplow drivers. This group of CDL drivers is often out on hazardous roads and in conditions where most sane people stay inside and call into work. This brave group of individuals is first responders to some of the most horrific accidents that occur in dangerous weather.
