Dignity of Labor implies that all professions or jobs are treated equally and no occupation is considered to be superior or inferior to others. It is therefore an extension of the universal Principle of Equality making it a fundamental right of every worker. In India, however, certain professions like doctors, lawyers, corporate sector employees at higher posts have respect in the society whereas other professions like drivers, manual laborers (domestic help, cobblers, artisans, rag pickers etc) are looked down upon. Jobs which involve higher pay and require intellectual skills are considered dignified against others which involve physical labour. Hence there is no dignity of labor.
