Let's say you give a beggar one dollar. You got that dollar from your employer for doing some work. The dollar he gave you he cannot give to anyone else. He could have given someone else that dollar in exchange for work but decided to give it to you.
Now if you give that dollar to a beggar, that potential other employee is not able to get it. That potential employee could be the beggar.
No, English is not my first language.

The fact you use the term "beggar" says a lot about you and your argument. I give to Charities (beggars?) and people on the street. I give things away and do things for free.
Money is not my leader, god or way of Life. My least favorite word is "money".
I only give money to people in genuine need….there's a difference between helping support someone who is just short a buck for lunch and someone who has made an entire industry out of the practice.
