Why are the laborers who demand a share in the capitalist’s profits, silent in demanding their share of the capitalist’s losses? Why don’t they return their past wages when a business ends up at running at a loss for the year? If labor is the cause of profits, then is it not also the cause of losses? A moments reflection will point out that laborers are only responsible for their job description — they are not directly responsible for the losses of business — and that the cause of an enterprise’s profit and loss lies primarily with the owner.

If an employer pays a worker a lower salary than the worker wants, the worker is free to leave the job and look for a higher paying job. 

Let any worker in Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, or Communist China try to attempt such a feat as leaving his job without permission of the state, and he will soon find what exploitation means.
