SEE HERE Thomas Sowell talks about the stupidity of letting the anointed make your decisions for you. Free markets are free of busybodies. The people exploiting you are not the employers but the elites who gull you into thinking they give a damn about you.
As Thomas Sowell points out: Nothing is easier for people with degrees to imagine than that they know better than the poor and uneducated. But, as someone once said, "A fool can put on his coat better than a wise man can put it on for him."
