This discussion got to be pretty extended, but the big idea I got was that when government (or a wealthy uncle) covers some of your living costs, you have less incentive to work for income. Employers have to make you a better offer before you will find it acceptable.

The amount an employer is willing to pay for a worker is entirely based on how much value the worker can provide to the employer. The employer doesn't care how much wealth the worker and others in their household have.
