Yes. I feel like these sentiments mostly come from people who went for an MSW with the dream of opening a middle class private practice. I never ceased to be amazed by some of the elitist sentiments expressed by my social work peers at school whose only goal was to provide marriage counseling in affluent areas.
I’m not saying poor people are saints but I get tired of this meme that only middle-class people and higher “deserve” cell phones, manicures, children, etc.

I used to have this view…and I’m glad I’ve evolved since them.
