Why do people want to do services in the tertiary sector and not the primary and secondary sectors?

Mainly because, jobs within the tertiary sector include things like nursing, police or delivery. These jobs tend to offer more money than jobs in the primary sector (for example farming)

Also, people may wish to do a service in the tertiary sector because it tends to help people. It is also called the service sector.

The tertiary sector also doesn't require much physical work. That can be a reason as well.
