There is no reason to believe that your first statement wouldn't lead to the latter. Those people with allowances are still
gonna want to see Hawaii and now they'll have the time to do it. So someone needs to make the plane, fly the plane, perform maintenence etc etc.
A lot of the stuff on the internet, Facebook and Youtube being the best but not only examples are things made by people who had the time to spare to work on their personal passions.
Note: Not saying we should put people on an allowance, though that may not be the worst plan in the universe.
