Absolutely not.

Why would anyone stay in slavery after they've been granted their freedom? Fear of the unknown? Unless someone is self-employed, and loved what they were doing, I can't imagine anyone loving their job so much that they'd say.

We'd buy an RV and travel across country for a few years, exploring every state in the union.

I'd cut way back on my current business and would work or volunteer for an organization doing things I'm passionate about. I'd probably be teaching English to foreigners, teaching adults to read, helping to place refugees, things like that.

I wouldn't work for someone else.
I'd pursue my hobbies, take classes, and travel.

I'd still work. I like being an engineer. I'd be bored to death without a project to work on and smart people to challenge me every day.

No. I wouldn't even show up. I'd just call in.

The whole point of me working now is to reach an end goal of not having to work. So if I suddenly find a short cut, be winning the lottery or suddenly having a really rich uncle, then I would consider it as reaching my goal and therefore do what I've always wanted to do--NOT WORK.

Default I'd become self-employed --

My new job would be determining the best plan for giving away those millions...
learning which organizations accomplish the most, with the least overhead.

When all but the last million was given away, I'd keep that last one for myself,
"retire" from my self-employment, and do some traveling.

Nice work, if I could get it!
