The exception, of course, are those born to privilege, who have family
resources, can afford to work years in internships that pay nothing,
or teach for bread crumbs indefinately.  There were always people who
couldn't fail, whatever they did.  And others who couldn't succeed.

Even those not born to money, but born to families with education have
every advantage over those coming from families and backgrounds
without that kind of experience and knowledge.

The tighter the job market, the more accute the injustices.
