This really naive. Again, 'things will sort themselves out".

It's not the only alternative to starvation is it? Crime pays way better.
Don't kid yourself that MacDonalds will suddenly be better stocked with
uneducated unskilled able-bodied humans. (Someone, maybe you, pointed out
that in the US anyone able-bodied can already get a job in janitorial or fast
food there's an abundance of socially demeaning shitjobs at below poverty
level wages.)

Then you also insist the government shouldn't supply education, and impose
guidelines for minimum wages, or support job training (with our taxes) --
count on even less incentive to work and much more incentive to rob liquor
stores or run drugs.
