Jamaica Inn If the ship wreckers were stealing the cargo from the ships that they wrecked, why were they living in such abject poverty?

(Spoiler alert) after sharing the spoils of their wrecking, the majority of the villagers would probably only obtain sufficient recompense to stave off, for a while at least, the worst effects of their abject poverty! Also I suspect that the 'lions share' of the loot would go to the leader, in this case the albino. It's ever thus. Regards, Sam.

I think too that if all the miners and neighbours and church goers downed tools to go to a wreck there would be about two thousand to share the spoils, likely there would be fighting, you could end up with nothing or dead.
