I don't think it is as simple as that. Historically, a lot of servants had 
no options - they had to work to eat, and quitting would mean they had no 
income and no way of securing another job. Very few servants would be hired 
without a good 'character' from an employer, and servants who quit would be 
unlikely to secure good references.
