    the corporations because we expect to be paid for our labor.  It is with those wages we demand that taxes are paid, therefore the corporations are actually paying the taxes not us lowly employees.  The wages they pay us is in fact the tax they pay.

      Employees aren't leeches. Why would you think I think that? You do a job, and are paid to do that job. It's fair and a good deal for both parties.

      How much in taxes would you be able to pay without your "friendly" neighborhood corporation available? The answer is zero. The corporation is the source of all funds to a locality, whether it directly pays taxes or it pays salaries that are taxed.

        die??  Accept wages that won't meet our needs??  Accept working conditions that would be harmful to our health??  Not able to move to better jobs because we owe company x for the 'loans' they gave us to shop in their company run grocery store, or care at their medical clinic??  That's a dictatorship of unelected organizations.  I'd rather go back to subsistence farming and barter than live in a 'company' town, cause their history isn't all that pretty.
