Wow. Am I awesome or what?
Lots of people have stories of parents who worked hard in low-paying jobs like this to make their children's lives better. Usually we honor them. Often we understand that they had no chance to aspire to be more, though they gave their kids that opportunity.

If you work so hard as to become irreplaceable at what you do, you'll never move up for that very reason.
It's the yes men that golf with the boss and let him win that have a bright future in the company.

I acknowlege that what you call "luck" and I call "factors beyond your immediate control" plays a role.
I am pointing out that what you DO with the cards you're dealt has at least as much to do with how far you go, and that part of it IS up to you.

no. My older children work at fast food places. They work harder than most every single day and get paid less than most.
