At first I chose "it depends", but after a bit of reflection I changed my vote to craftsmen.

I realized it's not complexity or the ingenuity involved in the work I do on a day to day that makes me labor or craftsmen, it's the little things I do no matter the task. If I'm just doing the minimum work required to complete the task I'm labor, if I'm doing the extra little things to make the code run better, run faster, be more maintainable or be more extensible then I'm a craftsman.
