It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it

Don’t mind getting your hands (and other parts of your anatomy) dirty? Then you might be a candidate for our upcoming story on Kitsap’s Dirtiest Jobs.

So far, we’ve met a couple who services portable toilets and a pest control worker who crawls under houses among all sorts of creepy crawlies.

Tell us about your dirty job. E-mail chenry@kitsapsun.com, or call (360) 792-9219.

The dirty jobs story is part of an occasional series launched in May, called Kitsap Goes to Work.

We want to hear about what you for a living, and why it matters. We hope to find out how workers have evolved to find jobs, or simply hold onto positions in a world transformed by economic factors, natural disasters and burgeoning technological changes.

We’re looking for a broad range of workers, including those who just entered the job market and those in emerging industries. We’re also looking for readers whose jobs fall into the following categories: Life’s clones (those who make a living doing the everyday life tasks the time-crunched don’t have time for), bean counters, jobs that didn’t exist before the Internet, green jobs, military, feeding Kitsap and “new on the job.”

Even if your job doesn’t fit into a category, tell us about what you do to make a living and why it matters. Email chenry@kitsapsun.com or call (360) 792-9219. Remember to leave your contact information.

Join a continuous conversation about the series on the Kitsap Sun’s Facebook page and right here at the Peninsular Thinking blog at http://pugetsoundblogs.com/peninsular-thinking.
