    I'd also like to know. Is there a list available for men to peruse so they don't accidentally get a job that falls foul of this "proper grown man" category?

    It's really unfortunate that there are so many employment stereotypes based on age and gender.

    Ok, well if a 35 year old man can clearly work as something like a labourer/sales/office and what not,leave the trolly jobs to people who really need them, handicapped, young teens, i'm talking about normal intelligent 35yo men...

    People can apply for whatever job they fancy.

    However, the reality is that if people can do labouring/sales/office jobs, they probably would because the pay would be significantly higher.

    I disagree! IMO jobs should be given to people who are capable and have the skills to do that job WELL. So what if a 35yo man has a law degree...if he has the skills and desire to be a trolley boy/man/person who are we to dictate what he can and cannot do!

    We have a friend who's intelligent, normal and actually a few months of 40.

    He's actively looking for a job as he was retrenched during the GFC (the company retrenched 2/3rd of its workforce).

    He now works as a trolly boy and goes to night school as he is 'over qualified' for many jobs, but under qualified for his previous job.

    I reckon it's his business what he does for a job.

    what's lazy about being a trolly collector?

    it's physically a demanding job

    it is a job

    it earns a wage

    it has regular hours
