Is this "slavery" not intrinsic in capitalism? If you think about it from a stockholders perspective, a company must be able to get more out of its employees than it puts in - otherwise there is no profit.

The argument is about how the company concerned dresses up the "slavery". Is it an obvious "ball and chain" or is it a more subtle "golden handcuff" approach.
