There have been more than a few mentions in the past here about finding contentment in what you do, and I've usually put most of those into the file folder labeled sanuk (enjoyable or fun). Pardon the oversimplification but I'll say again that if it isn't sanuk, the Thai don't care to do it. The specific post about it is here.

The nice thing about it that by in large you can find some joy (or at least satisfaction) in the most menial or unpleasant jobs. If you go back and look through the Smiles series you'll see many examples of that, including sewer workers and others doing what must be back-breaking labor.
