Outliers are not the norm, Keith.
Most everyone works a job where they work for a rich owner, which means it's in the worker's best interest to keep the company going so they don't close and lose their jobs.
You can't have it both ways, Keith. You can't blast the rich for creating all these jobs and then turn around and also blast the rich when the company closes. We see how many people complain when the company goes under. They know they need the rich guy's company to survive at that point.
When the rich start a business they are not necessarily thinking about creating jobs and helping people, but turning a profit....getting even richer. If they could do that through automation, even better for them.
The rich hire people, not necessarily through the goodness of their heart or social conscience, but because they need workers to run their business....paying as little as possible wherever possible while charging customers whatever the market permits. Maximising profits, minimising running costs.
That is a distinction without a difference. Sort of like someone saving a drowning kid because they wanted to help the kid vs someone helping the drowning kid because they wanted to be a local hero. Both mindsets end up with the same result: the kid being saved from drowning.
You can not pay people a doctor's salary for stocking shelves at a company. You just can't. Then nobody would want to become a doctor. There's a reason your skill set determines your job.
Got no skills? Then practice saying, "You want fries with that?"
Got skills? Then you'll be in a high paying job.
