Not Respected?

"J. Shifts on his feet. His stomach complains again" (Whitehead 28).            

              In class, Dr. Jerz said that free lance journalists like J. and the others on the list are less respected. I was surprised by this because reading this novel has instilled in me so much more respect and appreciation for people like J. I could never live such an unstable lifestyle, not knowing where I'll be in a few days or when I will be able to eat another meal. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to have a family as well. I am the kind of person who would need a steady income and a family.

Well, from what was presented in the book, it appears that freelancers are kind of like leeches. They'll go after whatever. Maybe that's why that aren't really respected.
