articles (the poor, the old, the unemployed, the teachers (?), the bankers (?)

hace un mes
Hello again!
I was trying to explain that we use the definite article "the" with groups of people like the sick, the poor, the old, the unemployed. The person I explained this to said that she understands and gave me the example to this rule. "The teachers work hard." I understand that it is a mistake to use "the" in this case.. Could you please explain why?
Thank you very much!
