    Dear Friends,

    There is a significant difference in wages for different category of workers.

    Unskilled workers

    Skilled workers

    Semi Skilled workers.

    My query is how these categories are defined ?

    If Mr. X is a semi skilled worker in a factory what is the criteria for keeping him under semi skilled category ? How he will move in skilled category ?

    Is there any criteria of number of years of service or number of years performing the particular job ?

    Is experience an issue in such categorization?

    Is education an indicative factor in such grading?

    Is there any rules framed by the Govt to define these categories ?

    I need clarification on this.

    Unskilled work – Unskilled occupations are the least complex types of work. Jobs are unskilled when persons can usually learn to do them in 30 days or less.
    Examples of unskilled jobs are:

    • clerk/typist
    • surveillance system monitor
    • hand packer
    • circuit board assembler
    • restaurant dishwasher
    Semi-skilled work – Semiskilled occupations are more complex than unskilled work and distinctly simpler than the more highly skilled types of jobs. They contain more variables and require more judgment than do unskilled occupations. Even though semiskilled occupations require more than 30 days to learn, the content of work activities in some semiskilled jobs may be little more than unskilled. Therefore, close attention must be paid to the actual complexities of the job in dealing with data, people, or objects and to the judgments required to do the work.
    Examples of semi-skilled jobs are:

    • chauffer
    • room service waiter
    • carpenter
    • nurse's aide
    • administrative assistant
    Skilled work – Skilled occupations are more complex and varied than unskilled and semiskilled occupations. They require more training time and often a higher educational attainment. Abstract thinking in specialized fields may be required.
    Examples of skilled jobs are

    • chemists
    • architechts
    • school band directors
    • physicians
    • attorneys
    • CEO of a business
