I paid for college and flight training myself, and am 100% debt free now with a job at a major airline (for now anyway!). It can be done, but it does involve a lot of work and sacrifice.

Its the amount of "work and sacrifice" involved that is the issue. There are easier ways for poor people to achieve a good life.

No seniority system, no bidding, tough schedule, retirement plan is usually “horizontal”. Beats being furloughed.
