Shit work & precarious job songs

Hey DiS, long time listener etc.

Can anyone think of decent songs about shit/precarious work that aren’t just old men with guitars harping on about unions.

The only ones I can think of atm are Precarious (Supermarket) - Martha & Journey to the call centre of the earth - The exhausts.

The vocals from about 1:44 to 3:10 are amazing, incredible performance. When I first heard it was both in awe and crying with laughter… “THIS IS THE WORST JOB IVE EVER HAD. NO BREAKS…THIS IS RIDICULOUS!”
Whole song is great though

I’m working, BUT I’M NOT WORKING FOR YOU!
