As an example of what I mean, students who are attending university are generally having their tuition and living expenses paid by the welfare state in the Scandinavian and Germanic countries.
With respect, this is untrue. State universities in Germany for the most part do not charge students tuition, but no way did the »welfare state« pick up my living expenses when I was a student. (Demonstrably needy students can get a certain amount of support but at least part of that must be paid back after graduation. This applies to about 1 student out of 4. On the other hand, about 2 students out of 3 have a part-time job in order to support themselves.)
