Contrary to what most people would say, the vast majority of people anywhere on earth including America are hired at their jobs because they knew someone who knew someone who knew that someone solely because that someone either, in no specific order:
-Knew them from intermarried family
-Knew them via family that maintains connection via religion
-directly via familial connections based entirely off sociocultural religious factionalism
Now I will give you this that this reality and discussion on the interconnectivity between religion on a sociocultural level and how that gets people the world over jobs is not a simple "here's how it works" answer but it most certainly is the reality and is what I mean when I say "socioeconomic religious benefits package". In a nutshell, jobs or the chance at jobs and certainly at the higher level business dealings and investments.
