The thing is, this retraining applies to all. She most likely will be the same as most middle class earners that have enjoyed a great Salary for many years. The working class face this sort of thing as part of normal life.
People should live by their means. Set your stall up. You dont go borrowing huge amounts of money to get a better house than you can afford.
Buy a cheap first-time house and pay it off. Then save up to buy another. The same with a Car.
She seems to be veiling that they are above being told to retrain as they are special. How dare they suggest something lowly such as a Drone Pilot!
She is still earning a Salary at the Times I assume.
