Who should we really be cheering and applauding, and displaying our gratitude for?

Could it be that we should be showing the most admiration for all the construction workers, farmers, factory workers and other labour-intensive workers who are, in actuality, the people that form the pillars of human civilisation? And not our top directors, CEO's, and politicians - who are simply organisers and facilitators? Just because they control our hard-earned material resources, we assume that we earn our money from them, as opposed to the reality - that they earn their money from us, all without lifting a finger to earn it themselves? Could things be upside-down when it comes to who we should admire/respect? I am still working in a manual-labour intensive job, and to me it seems like much harder, "real" work. There is no time for boredom, no room to complain, and no real promotion prospects - just pure work, with little reward.
