It’s all just money flowing round a system. You spend money on someone then they spend it on someone else.
Thinking we should spend less on some so there will be more for us, is as insane as the liver wanting the heart to deny blood to the kidneys. It’ll just destroy the whole body.

Let the free market decide the “jobs” that need doing and the wage that job deserves.
Let people use their lives as they see fit.
