So, you're saying that these people don't exist because you haven't met him? Are you saying that there aren't people working for minimum wage or less who are trying to live a life from that income?
I realize that, yes, this is a fabricated situation, but clearly, these kinds of peopl exist, so we can explore the details of this abstract idea. If you are just worried about you and your situation, that's fine, it's a conservative stance, and it's one that I personally don't agree with. It puts the burden of survival squarely on the individual's shoulders. Not everyone is able to do the things that you can do, and I don't need a concrete example of this. There exist people who are more capable than you are, and also there are people less capable than you are. The gamut will run from the most capable to the least capable. Are we to assume that the least capable people should not survive because their skill set doesn't allow them to earn a livable wage?
Requiring concrete factual examples of things in order to discuss possible outcomes isn't realistic. We have to assume that these situations exist, or have a possibility of existing so that we can be proactive with thinking up possible solutions, instead of waiting until we have already experienced the situations to start coming up with damage control reactive solutions.
