As it stands people are free to build their own factories and control that business. True no business of any respectable size can exist without workers. But if there is no factory certainly there will be no workers. Thats why out sourcing has such a large effect on employment.
The logic that the worker deserves more for working in the factory is flawed logic. If you buy lemons and everything needed for a lemonaid stand. ANd pay a friend to operate the stand should that friend take a larger cut of the profits? Maybe at first the worker may make actually more than the owner. But eventually when the business is built up that changes. The workers still make the same for their work but the owner sees an increase in profits. The owner gets to keep their profit because that is their liberty to do so. If other people think it should be done differently it is their liberty to do so. But that is based on their opinion.
Suggesting that an owner of an business should share more of their profits is quite different than forcing an owner to share more of their profits. Pay scale is governed by the federal government. Working to get Pay scale changed is more fruitful than trying to hedge the liberties of Americans.
