The "good of humanity" is measured in money. The jobs most valuable to society tend to pay the highest (at least, in the free market systems). The jobs that any person can be minimally trained to do don't pay well.
I believe you do not understand the concept of altruism.
The good of Humanity is measured in how we treat each other and what is available for those who do not function very well in a monetary economy, this is then for the greater good of humanity.
Not everything is dollars and cents.
Altruistic tendencies create social good, in a myriad of ways, it is also what our political morons are lacking in, the cremation of care ceremony is literally a burning of any sense of social responsibility and any feelings of care for the harm you cause.
