Emma lives in the lap of luxury and can afford to freely find fault in whomever she chooses. She need not fear ramifications, certainly need not consider the person's whole circumstance or worth. Jane, and Robert Martin for that matter, have 'to work for a living'. They must deal with the anxieties and realities of more basic concerns in life than those that Emma faces and in some cases generates for herself.

Pretty high class problems compared to those of the people she looks down upon!
