Arrow 99% of jobs consist of pen-pushing.

99% of jobs consist of pen-pushing.

The term 'pen-pushing' may be going out of usage. So brushing up it's meaning before starting.

Pen-pushing means the banal paper-work, clerical type work.

99% of jobs involve a considerable amount of pen-pushing.

Be it the profession of mechanical engineering, be it information technology, be it civil engineering, be it medical, be it surgery, be it espionage in intelligence organization, be it acting in films, be it television, be it literature, be it military, be it sports, be it research in science and mathematics, be it trade and commerce, be it merchant shipping, be it politics, be it civic and administration, be it teaching, be it detective work, be it law-enforcement, be it counter-insurgency, be it theater, be it music, be it artistry, be it dentistry, be it tailoring, be it fashion designing, be it cooking, be it culinary, be it outer space research, be it driving public transport like buses, taxis and auto-rickshaws, be it portering, pen-pushing is there in everything. However riveting, interesting and glamourous the job may seem, pen-pushing is there in everything.

It is not that pen-pushing is unnecessary or useless but pen-pushing is there in everything. Don't be deceived by attractive perceptions.

Reconnaissance is beginning to get noticed
The only profession in which pen-pushing is less is that of prostitution and allied fields like pornography, etcetera.

Yes. It is true in organised sectors. Also known as formal sector or licensed organisations. Example: Factories, offices both Govt and private.

This is also true. It is in unorganised sectors. Also known as informal sector. Example: Agriculture, construction, domestic help and other cottage industries.

As per Indian statistics 94% of work force is employed in unorganised sector only.
