The main fashion editorial agencies on the opposite don't let their girls pretty often do low-level money jobs even when they need the money: the girls are told that they are better than that and that the agency is aiming at something bigger.
it is exactly that.
But fact is that "models forum audience" is far more obsessed by high fashion than 90% of the girls.
Obviously this can be different depending of where the girl is from, but in personnaly dealing girls from eastern countries for many years, fact is the main goal is money, and this unfortunately very often include a huge family pressure asking to the girl "to bring money home".
so the choices of agencies include often much more "social" elements that people on forums can ever imagine. To sign a girl in a major high fashion agency expecting money "maybe some day" is a choice that some mother agency can afford but which is just refused by the girl or the familly who are often just interested to know "how much and when" she will earn.
the forums, it is a bit dreamland, unfortunately very very far from the daily reality of new faces management.
