Wage slavery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wage slavery refers to a situation where a person's livelihood depends on wages, especially in a total and immediate way. The term's analogy between slavery and wage labor may refer only to an "[un]equal bargaining situation between labor and capital," particularly where workers are paid comparatively low wages (e.g. sweatshops). Or it may draw similarities between owning and employing a person, which equates the term with a lack of workers' self-management. This covers a wider range of employment choices bound by the pressures of a hierarchical social environment e.g. working for a wage not only under threat of starvation or poverty, but also of social stigma or status diminution.
Pierre-Joseph Proudhon's "labor theory of value" holds that when labor or its product is sold, it ought to receive in exchange, an equal amount of labor or a product that required the same amount of labor to produce.
Mutualists believe that a natural economic consequence of a truly laissez-faire economy, would be that income to individuals would be proportional to the amount of labor they exert.
