The life/choice''risk'' they make growing up hoping to find success in their career path is no different than anybody else's.
You took a risk going to school and pursuing studies in whatever field was of interest to you. You invested your time, and money for attending, books, essentials such as paper and pens, and eventually laptops. All this without any guarantee of success.
Sometimes, people even struggle to find success despite graduating due to saturated fields.
I look at those decisions as life choices, not risks, and it's not because you have to pay to attend school and for the material/equipment that it falls into a financial risk category (or any risk at all).
Owners apparently don't make these "life choices" they take "risks" and everyone else just makes "life choices".
I guess separating the two makes it easy for people like you to avoid the hypocrisy and say "well he made a life choice that went bad so **** him, I make life choices everyday." at the same time you say "Owners are taking a big risk here so they deserve whatever they want."
