There are people who work and there are people who don't, excluding those who are still studying. Of course, within those two categories of people classified according to their employment status, several subcategories exist. For example, a person who works belongs to either the subgroup of those who work because they like their job or the subgroup of those who work because they do not have a choice. A person who do not work might be one who chose not to work because there are no job vacancies. Another unemployed person might have been unemployed not because he chose to be, but because he was deemed either underqualified or overqualified for the job he thought would have been perfect for him.
Employed versus Unemployed. It seems that most people have the fixation on attaining the employment status which would lead them to a favorable life and the fixation on looking down on people who do not attain it.
