Compare FormerRegimePersonnel, when a lot of secret policemen, commandos, spies and similar people end up fallen on hard times at once. The most common FallenOnHardTimesJob for them is [[TheMafia mafia]] [[TheMafiya soldier]]. Also compare WorthlessForeignDegree, in which highly educated immigrants end up in menial jobs. Contrast WaitingForABreak which is about aspiring actors and film writers doing a day job whilst ''attempting'' to make it big. Can lead to a ScrapHeapHero if the person is called back to duty.
