Don't get disappoint.. my advice is that first u try to find yourself , even u can't than accept from others and share with all us.
I HAVE TRIED TO GIVE SIMPLE AND BEST CLEARANCE ABOUT YOUR QUESTION AS BELOW;
Unskilled Labor : A segment of the work force associated with a low skill level or a limited economic value for the work performed (human capital). Unskilled labor is generally characterized by low education levels and small wages. Work that requires no specific education or experience is often available to workers who fall into the unskilled labor force.
Unskilled labor provides a significant part of the overall labor market, performing daily production tasks that do not depend on technical abilities or skills. Menial or repetitive tasks are typical unskilled labor positions. Jobs that can be fully learned in less than 30 days often fall into the unskilled labor category.
Skilled Labor : A segment of the work force with a high skill level that creates significant economic value through the work performed (human capital). Skilled labor is generally characterized by high education or expertise levels and high wages. Skilled labor involves complicated tasks that require specific skill sets, education, training and experience, and may involve abstract thinking.
Skilled labor is the specialized part of the labor force with advanced education. Examples of skilled labor include physicians, plumbers, attorneys, engineers, scientists, builders, architects and professors.
Highly Skilled Labor ; This working class stands in contrast to white collar workers, which historically have had the higher-paying, salaried positions to go with their clean and pressed white shirts.
I hope you got clear idea about all you required. Enjoy the day.
Thanks to Meera and Seetarama for giving fairly understandable definitions. However, to remove even little room for any doubt or ambiguity, I am sharing definitions of unskilled, semi-skilled, skilled and highly skilled categories of work, as published in the Gazette of India; Extraordinary, Ministry of Labour and Employment Notification No.S.O. 1352(E), dated 24th August, 2006.
a) "Unskilled work" means work which involves simple operations requiring little or no skill or expertise on the job.
b) "Semi-skilled work" means work which involves some degree of skill or competence required through experience on the job which is capable of being performed under the supervision or guidance of a skilled employee and includes supervisory work.
c) "Skilled work" means work which involves skill or competence required through experience on the job or through training as an apprentice in a technical or vocational institute and the performance of which calls for initiative and judgment.
d) "Highly-skilled work" means work which calls for a high degree of perfection and full competence in the performance of certain task acquired through intensive technical or professional training or practical work experience for long years and also requires of a worker to assume full responsibility for his judgment or decision involves in the execution of these tasks.
As for who falls under these categories, I would suggest you to try procuring a copy of the said notification from Labour Department, which also contains an exhaustive list of skill-level wise designations of workers. It won't be feasible for me to reproduce the same here because of its sheer size.
Hope, this would give you ample clarity on the subject.
