It always bothered me that there were no normal jobs in The Sims 4, particularly no working class jobs. Every job ends with your sim being super wealthy and able to build their dream home. Well, I like more realistic gameplay, and so the Working Class Hero project was born! This is its tender beginning, with a series of teen part time careers turned into adult full time careers with five levels each. So far there's Barista, Fast Food Employee and Manual Laborer, but I also intend to add a Retail Employee career to this post, eventually. Just have to make it first. Basically, these are the teen careers with a couple of levels added on top. The pay is crap, and missing work at the lower levels will get you fired.

Manual Laborer

Description: You've entered the ranks of the working class. It won't make you rich, but it might make you happy. Start out doing menial tasks, and you may one day lead your own construction crew.

Fast Food Employee

Description: The fast food industry spans the globe, and now you're a part of this global community. This job is not for the ambitious, and you'll work long hours for little pay, but it pays the rent. Only one thing is certain: now you know how they're made, you'll never look at a burger or a chicken nugget the same way again. Time to consider going vegan.


Description: People need coffee like they need air, and now you're the one who serves it to them. Wear a smile, practice your milk foaming skills, and try not to get frustrated with all the tired, grumpy customers who come into the shop. Remember, after they get their dose of caffein, they too will be smiling!

Hope you enjoy!
