You are so deeply ignorant of what poverty is like and many peoples experiences of life and education. Nobody chooses to be poor and the vast majority of people just want to work a fair day's work for a fair day's wage. Though that shouldn't matter either; the worth of human life is not determined by their labour.Yes they do. People deserve to be paid according to the scarcity of their skills, rarity and production. They absolutely deserve to be poor if their life goals are designed around staying poor. Choices have consequences.
There are plenty of people who would love to be RPG designers as such the pay should be very low and I will bet they get tens of thousands of applications for this job. Heck I would love to do it, but I would rather keep my high salary as an aerospace engineer and let WOTC pay someone else to do it for $50k a year and I will play what they design, while having money left over for other things.
Nobody should experience poverty, no matter whether they work or not or what they work at.
I'd prefer to play games knowing artists getting proper compensation rather than experience the shite many do right now.
