I've seen certain Trek characters talk as if certain jobs were beneath them. So why would anyone want to serve as a butler or maid in the 24th century, like the woman who was Data's maid in A.G.T?
She was a holographic maid. What? He had a holographic fireplace, why not a maid?
Iv'e read the idea that she was a hologram before, but I never saw it confirmed officially anywhere.
Not that there's anything wrong with being a maid, but the dialog in TNG especially suggests that humans seek high profile jobs that signals accomplishment.
It's all about careers and achievement, since they cant impress one another with money or wealth it seems.
