A job is a priviledge, not a right.

A job is an agreed upon transaction between a service provider and a consumer of those services.

In a healthy market, each party should be able to negotiate the terms of this transaction such that it is mutually agreeable. But by your reckoning this is all very one-sided. Just throw the serfs a pittance as they sit there with mouths open like baby birds; not like they're worth the bother. After all, they have a job. What else should they want, right?

So do your employees know how little you think of them?
