Grounds Maintenance Workers
Lawns, gardens, and grounds don’t maintain themselves. Someone has to cut, prune, rake, shovel, and trim the grass, bushes, trees, and plants. Though you can make a case that extravagant landscaping gets scaled back in recessions, basic grounds maintenance still marches on. That’s what makes grounds maintenance a recession-proof career choice. Grounds maintenance workers maintain all of the greenery and plants that surround buildings and make up gardens and yards.
