The everyday hustle of life from waking up in the morning at 9 am to reaching workplace then getting back home at 5 pm and making a cup of coffee after the hectic day at office followed by taking hot shower and finally putting yourself to rest on bed at 10 pm, putting on morning alarm to do all of that all over again. This sounds like a normal day until you wake up to find your geyser not working due to which you are late for office, you try to uplift your mood by making cup of tea when you find office microwave is broken, you crib about office maintenance and after long day, reach home to dirty floor since this morning you got no time to clean up, before I make you picture this day becoming worse, local handyman in Buckhead, GA is put to job. Yes, handyman is someone who does all the small jobs to save our day.

Importance of handymen:
Even though unemployment is at peak in India and with today’s hectic lifestyle even middle class are willing to delegate the simple household chores to someone. Even with this ratio of demand and supply, why do we fail to find handymen easily? Well! There are several problems surrounding it, let’s briefly discuss some of the major problems:
- Lack of agencies: It’s difficult to trust anyone and everyone especially when it comes to allowing them inside your home with increasing urban crime and who has time for verifying handymen before putting them to work, that’s when need of agency arise. Agency can also bridge gap between employer and employee.
- Lack of proper training: Most handymen we find around are unskilled since they do not have resource to go through required training. They either work on instinct or experience.
- Minimum wage: Dilemma around what should be paid since laymen don’t really know the standard price or how to compare and hence one feels obliged to pay whatever amount is asked by such handymen.
- No Assurance: Since jobs of handymen are mostly informal in nature, there is any certainty that the job will be done as expected.
