No, even today people do not look at different kinds of work in the same way. Most of the road cleaners, toilet sweepers etc., are still from some particular communities only. The other people do not consider these jobs respectable and they hate these jobs and also treat these people in a derogatory manner.
This difference has been created because the rich people study well and get good jobs. Thus, they earn well and become richer. But the poor people can't even afford to eat, so, they can't spent on studying and are forced to take these kinds of jobs. This needs to be changed in order to bring equally among the people so that everyone should respect each other
