Why is it that graphic designers, and other creative professionals, are constantly being marginalised and undercut in their pricing structure. When did we get the reputation for being shysters?

The following is a video portraying normal folks, in everyday situations, where they assume the role of client and designer, and therefore start treating normal consumer services like design. Obviously, it’s abusrd.

Of course, I’d like to see more examples from respected professions like law, medicine, or even auto maintenance. Maybe the answer is for designers to assume the persona of a surly blue collar bloke … like my father!
