RE: Working as an employee
There's no exploitation going on in any voluntary employment relationship. That's a Marxist trope.

What you get paid is usually a reflection of how many other people are willing and capable of doing the job you're being paid to do (supply and demand of labor). A business isn't a charity and they are not going to pay you more than the market dictates if they want to stay in business for very long.

As others have said, the employer is offering you steady pay (and likely benefits) in exchange for you doing delivering on expectations that should have been clear up front. Either the employer or the employee can seek to clarify those expectations at any time and that often happens several times before you're terminated.

I don't own my own business, but I do hire and fire people and I am amazed at how often I have to explain these concepts. I guess schools gave up on helping people become successful and just teach social justice full time.
