Query about tailors

I'm reading Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales (the Barnes & Noble edition & perhaps more on that & it later) and I've noticed that many of the tales seem to have a tailor as the main character. I am wondering why this is. Are they symbols of a poor but honest worker, or of a meek person, or of somebody not quite to be trusted or what? Anybody know?
