The most ridiculous, in my opinion, a profession that is in the labor market in the US — holder of road signs, says Koval Evgeniy “Yandex Zen”.

Yes, in the US there is such a profession — flagger. To work as a holder signs, it is necessary to pass courses and obtain certification.
That prevents to put to a stand the signs “stop” and “slow”, as is done throughout the world in construction or road works and not to make this a profession?!
What do flaggery?
Flaggery — people on construction sites who control traffic. These are men and women standing along roads and highways who help traffic through the construction zone, despite the traffic stop at certain lines.
Flaggery often work in teams, each of them controls traffic flow in a particular direction, says the website snagajob.com.
Flaggery needs to stand on feet for a long time and understand how best to manage the traffic. Flagger can rearrange signal cones to use signs and give hand signals to communicate with motorists.
The representatives of this profession should be sufficiently self-confident to stand in front of cars, sometimes in unbearable heat, sometimes in the middle of the night. In addition, they must be confident that with their help, the movement will not be more confusing than it should be. And if motorists do not obey signs, such signalers can record license plates to report to the police.
