Notes to answerer
Asker: Alain, thank you for your input. I have declined the answers received as I had found similar using Google and they are not appropriate. The idea is that employment causes the decapitalization of workers in the sense (I understand) that their skills become outdated and they lose the habits of regular work. Thanks again for your interest.
