Very less pay
Again, the cobbler is not very well paid at all. They just barely manage to earn enough to run their family show. People don’t mind paying thousands for a good garment but would surely bargain with these poor people when it comes to paying them. They earn very less in a day.
A cobbler’s job is seldom needed. There are very few days in a year when you would go to a cobbler to mend your shoe. Cobblers usually don’t get any regular work and have few lucky days when they are busy.
Cobblers are found sitting on the road side under the sun. They have to bear extremes of weather conditions like heat, rain, cold and wind. They are left to the mercy of nature and have to close down if it rains or storms heavily. Cobbler’s work all days as it is usually on weekends that people are free and they visit them when needed.
Cobbler’s job is purely dependent on the needs of the people around. With good brands around, people seldom find the need to visit a cobbler. Even if they have issues with the shoes, they prefer going back to the shops they have bought those shoes from as they come with a warranty. So, the numbers of cobblers are dying out because of no fixed income in a month.
People still have soft corner for maids, washer men, drivers and gardeners because they need them every day. But, with cobblers it is usually a once in a while affair. Hence, cobblers are never at the advantage of receiving any free food, clothes or any other help from the people around. Nor do they receive any bonuses on the festivals unlike other labor.
