    I would clarify it a bit, because people do agree to work in exchange for compensation. If the labor is by agreement, and the agreement is fulfilled by all parties, then it matters not the ratio of compensation of the laborer and the employer -- the contract was agreed upon and fulfilled.

    The currently promoted chaos that is immigration, homelessness and otherwise lack of labor mentality / existence is financed by theocratic malefactors with a socialist bent. A laborer (employee, employer, entrepreneur, freelance, etc.) is an individual nobleman and does not fit the described scenario. The degenerative (socialist = communist, fascist, woke, etc. and otherwise) that propagates something to the effect  "you did not build this" violates the very essence of the noble being and the actions thereof.
