    or earn more than below subsistence wages, then employees aren't tied to that business and foced to accept shitty treatment.

    An employee that can make a living wage then the employer will have to work harder at keeping that employee and that employee's experience, you certainly wouldn't be able to treat them like shit. Keep them poor and make sure they have no other options then you can treat them like shit because the options are work in a shitty place or not work at all.

    This is nothing more than the modern version of working in a company town and trading your scrips at the company store and finding that you still have an outstanding debt to the company.

    To the world you are one person. To one person, you are the world.
