Like a lot of things, there is almost certainly some variation in aptitude and inclination, even more so in opportunity. Then there's using the term "incompetence" to describe something one hasn't acquired skill to do: It might be denotively strictly true, but has way too much of a perjorative connotation.

But, yes, programming is work. Learning to program is work. There's dignity in it to be recognized and respected.
