I get so sick of this argument. You cannot BUY worth, you cannot BUY intelligence. Where I work, we go through managerial types with their fancy degrees like a crohn's sufferer goes through toilet paper. Why? Because you cannot shell out money and get a slip of paper that proves you can do a job. These people are always immediately replaced, but when someone who is in production (you know, those who ACTUALLY run the machines that create the product that makes the company all the money) leaves it takes forever to find a suitable replacement.
And no, I am not speaking for myself, I am in shipping/receiving, but I see first hand who the real movers and shakers are. I've offered this wager to the people who make the decisions where I work. Everyone who works on salary take a month off and see how the company runs, then let the hourly people take a month off and see how it goes. The results will surprise you

And most of those jobs used to be done mainly by people who were not working them as a means of full-time sole support or family support. They were working them as temporary measures and first-time employment to get their feet wet in the job market and cut their teeth earning their base job skills.
Because we have a crap economy and lots of very, very poorly educated people, some by choice, and some due to circumstance, you see people attempting to make a living at those menial jobs which is not their purpose.
