A very good point.^^^
200 years ago 90ish % of the American work force was in some agricultural line of work and today that number is less then 1%. So are they all unemployed? Of course not, as an individual you retool, retrain, and get up off your butt and make something of yourself. This situation is much different I acknowledge but that isn't to say everyone of them is going to be out on the street. Some will make the most and others will sit until whatever money they have until it runs out. Personal choice and personal actions and the freedom & liberty to choose as such is why America still has hope. You just have to be ready for the circumstances from those choices made.
