    My dear Comrade,

    Here is one understanding of Capitalism:

    Capitalism is an economic system in which trade, industry, and the means of production are controlled by private owners with the goal of making profits in a market economy.[1][2] Central characteristics of capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets and wage labor.[3] In a capitalist economy, the parties to a transaction typically determine the prices at which assets, goods, and services are exchanged.[4]

    And why are you posting the definition of Capitalism according to Wikipedia?

    You are resorting to a false analogy due to a lack of recourse to a form of minimum wage that clears our poverty guidelines.

    Under our current regime, labor is denied and disparage in recourse to their enumerated rights regarding unemployment compensation in our at-will employment States.
