JOB: Specific employment activities associated with a production process that are usually undertaken by a single worker. For example, someone might have the job of serving food or repairing cars. Others might have the job of teaching economics. The word "job" is the primary designation applied to a worker when hired by an employer. It is commonly used as a modifier for other terms, such as job satisfaction or job security, as reference to specific aspects of working or employment.

CRAFT UNION: A labor union composed of workers in the same occupation, but not necessarily in the same industry, producing the same product, or employed by the same firm. Common examples of craft unions are for plumbers, carpenters, and musicians. Craft unions generally exert market control by limiting the number of suppliers. The American Federation of Labor (AFL) began as a collection of craft unions. This is also termed a trade union.

In the study of economics, this takes the form of assuming that what works for parts of the economy, such as households or businesses, also works for the aggregate, or macroeconomy. The contrasting fallacy is the fallacy of division.

"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date. "
