In many countries, learning English is associated with getting ahead in life. This is because English is the language of international business and the language (or at least the second language) of the educated class.
If you look at it this way, learning English is a good thing. It allows you to get a better job, which leads to financial gain and economic mobility. It puts a person in a higher social class because it makes them seem more educated.
Therefore, learning English tends to lead (whether this is a good or bad thing) to a higher status and a better economic situation.
