The fact is that all the goods and services in the US are produced by a minority of the people, including those with jobs. Much, if not most, of the "work" done nowadays is just so much paperwork. Very few workers actually do anything really necessary. You may be one of those that actually contribute something of real value. The rest are on a giant WPA program. All insurance, most banking, government, and many other "useful" jobs are just moving paper from one pile to another, or shuffling electronic data. The reason is just for bookkeeping. Useless otherwise, if you think about it. I was amazed, when I took my current job, at just how lazy the average person is. Most people are happy to get a desk job, surf and chat the day away, and send anything that's not perfect back without analyzing the problems or helping at all. Most people are automatons and I could write a better automation with two pages of code.
