a) A respected job:

83.5% Hungarian think that a respected job is an important criteria in choosing the job, followed by Greece (72.6%), Korea (67.5%), Spain (62.9%) and Italy (61.4%). On the other hand, only 10.9% Danish, 23.3% Norwegian, 25% British, 25.9% French and 27.3% Australian think that a respected job is important in a job. So what could make that less rich countries people wanted a more respected job than the rich countries like Denmark or Norway?
