I'm a carpenter, and although my work is usually interesting and absorbing, sometimes (like today...formwork in the pissing rain) I get a little bored and my mind starts to wander. I thought, which races would be represented by each trade? I know this will require a little generalisation here, but it's just for fun :D

Empire = Carpenters. Solid, generally does what they're supposed to, occasionally does something unexpected that sometimes works.

Dwarfs = Plumbers. Hard, dirty work but someone's gotta do it. Traditional, heirarchal, old school.

Brettonia = Electricians. Similar to Empire but not as willing to get thier hands dirty.

Wood Elves = lumberjacks, sorry but i had to say it

Orcs - TV repairmen. They just bang on the thing until it works.

Goblins - Miners. You cannot send little children in to lay the dynamite, but there is no laws against sending in goblins. :) Just make sure they don't let loose some squigs.

Wood Elves - Florists. They could run the shops that sell plants, seeds, etc. I am also convinced we have one living downtown where I live.

High Elves - Boxers. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Sounds kinda of like a HE poem sorta thing. The elves are also nimble, and could get out of reach fast.

Ogres - Wrestlers. No one can beat an 800 pound giant coming at you at full speed.

Trolls - Soldiers.
Troll #1: "Har har, I got shot."
Troll #2: "I got my arm blown off! HAHA"
Troll #3: "Do ya really have to brag? It just grows back!"

Dwarves can, since dwarves have equal or better strength.

Dwarves would be the professional wrestlers while Ogres are the sumo wrestlers.

Too bad they can't take a punch, which is a key requirement of being a boxer. High Elves are more suited as being dancers, musicians, artists, etc.

Or high elves can be hair-dressers.

And perhaps Dark Elves can be tattoo artists and piercers. :)

I think slann and skinks would be office workers and saurus and kroxigors would be construction workers/soldiers.

Ogers are butchers, they even have minis for that.
Goblins/Gnoblars: assembly line workers.
High Elves: Computing.
Wood Elves: Environmental activists. Sustainable foresters.
Chaos Barbarians/Orcs: construction?
Vampire Counts: Chinese sweat shops ;)
Skaven Clan Moulder: Biotechnology, genetic engineering !

I think Chaos would not be represented by a profession, but by customers of professionals and tradesmen. Let's face it, they rain on your parade and always cause a stir.

I think Chaos is represented by the traffic in shopping center parking lots this time of year. Brutal. Savage. Deadly.

Skaven are politicians (and lawyers/businessmen). The embodiment of back-stabbing ambition.

I would imagine because China is the biggest and most well-known.
Indonessian, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, etc. sweatshops are equally as bad, but they are much smaller and produce a much smaller number of goods, so people aren't quite as familiar with the name of those countries...

Hey, I resent that as a hairdresser...

That's sterotyping, that is!

Possibly run some kind of strange adult web sites.

The point could have been made without including any ethnicity.
