We know that being an air hostess is hard work as indeed are most viable positions in advertising and yet one of the most successful and glamorous series of the last few years is Madmen and now possibly Pan Am.There is no doubt that these days all the glamour has gone from most jobs.
Michael O’Leary has reduced Air travel to a scrum and client accountants have reduced Advertising to a niche occupation.
Multinationals have for their part reduced Ireland to a region of Wales.
But are we the better for all this “progress”. Are we happier wealthier and more career satisfied.
Has the glamour of the 60s been replaced by the WAG culture of 2012. Are Wayne Rooney Katie Price and Jordan the new Don Draper, Audrey Hepburn and Princess Grace?
