Yeah, and then Jane Doe starts the process. A person with no education or skill or work history can get an entry level job in fast food for minimum wage. Ideally that person is in that position because they are very young and they've made some choices along the way that led them there. From that point they can put in the effort to rise in the company, leave for a better job or just do enough to stay employed. We have the welfare system in place to help them out regardless of what choices they made.
