Why do you use queue:work?

That depends on the method you follow.

Let say, QUEUE_CONNECTION=database and When you fire an event "event(new \App\Events\TestEvent());" Those events drop in a database queue. We need queue:work at that time.

Generally, Queues are recommended that prevents block on the frontend.
